us have noticed that many cabbages
which appeini hard and every way
sound, have, when eaten as cold •slaw,
an offensive taste. This arises not from
any imperfection in thii cabbage head,
caused by rot air otherwise, but by the
absorption of nox ' fous gases after it buil
ceased to grow. Doubtless much of the
speedy.g,rowth of the cabbage is due to
the Sub4taileea th,it are taken up by the
leaves and con voted by them into veg
etable tissue.
Now this absorb Lion of foul air by the
leaves of the cabbage g oes on after' the
plant is taken from the ground where
it has grown and even after the head
has been severed from the &talk ; but as
the plant has no huger the opportunity
to take up moisture by rueansof its roots,
and is withal denrived of sunlight, the
gases which in the growing plant were
converted into a nutritious article of
food, are now only mechanically held
by the leaves and are ready to. give, off
an unpleasant odor and taste as seat as
they are prepared for food. Great care
should then be taken to store cabbages
where the air is comparatively pure, if
we would have them sweet and fresh
or when they are llmt, brought in from
the garden.
We have often seen cabbages stored
by farmers in places where had gases of
every kind abound, and where there is
no opportunity
,for ventilation. The
cabbage, true to its nature, ,takes these
up amid gives them °flat u time and- in
a manner. which . causes them to be most
-offensive. Town and city grocers not
unfrequently place a pile of cabbages
between boxes of soap, kegs of tobacco,
or in the immediate vicinity of kerosene
oil, or smoked fish. No wonder that
cabbages thus fi to re d do not have the

I was as patient as the case would ad

ant; but my patience was sorely tried.
I will not • punish the reader with the
long finespun story she told me, but a
few lines will suffice to inform" him of
the material facts. .
She :was a widow, her natno was
Marche. • She had an only son, ?hiiip,
who' weA employed
_in the insurance
office, and•receivkd three dollars a week
for his service. •He was a good boy and
loved his mother, as a son should- Up
on their united earnings they lived
very comfortably in an obscure street,
where they hired two rooms. Mrs.
Marche's catalogue of her son's virtues
was certainly very edifying. He never
spent a cent upon himself, never went
out at nights,
and attended church
forenoon•and afternoon.
An evil day had coMe. On UPS Sat
urday, three weeks preceediug, Mr.
Carman, the President of the insurance
comnany, as he declared, had sent
Philip with a Valuable diamond ring to
the jeweler's to have the one
On inquiry the ring was found . not' to
have reaohed its de.stitiation. The
jeweler had, never seen it. ITo make the
cube more oomplicated, the . boy denied
having received the ring. Mr. Carman
had never sent him on any such errand.
The boy had been arrested on
charge of btealing the ring; and was
now confined in Jail. Mr. carman was
ready to swear he delivered the valta
hie article into the hands of the po'y
with .explicit directions as to wher6 he
should carry it and what should be
done withit.
' It looked like a bad cas'e:. The poor
woman Was in the saddest d'stress. She
was sure that her darling . j boy' would
not steal. I pitied her au proi - Led
to do what I could for her s n.
When she had gone I' called .upon
Mr. Carman. I found that he was'ene
- of those dogmatic old fellows WhO are
never wrong—who find it impossible to
err, even by design, or to make a mis
take. I tried to argue the point with
him, but'he would not say, much: He
told me the story—was sure he sent the:
boy and nobody else. -‘ .
I ventured to suggest that he might
have been mistaken ; that he had sent
the ring by some other person. '
" Do you take me for a simpleton sir?'
Do yotuthink I don't know what lam
about?" he exclaimed, bestowing upon
me a look Of withering contempt.. " I
sent the; ring with the boy, sir. The
boy haa'stolen it. Nothing more need
be said, sir," .
And he turned to the newspaper he
had been reading. -.
*1 was not =eh pleased with the in
terview.. I was highly vexed at the
haughty bearing of the fellow, and I
ennfess that my pique rdndered me ttlii
fold more zealma-, in 'my endeavors to
clear my youthful client. 1
I visited Philip in the jail. He wits
very sad on his mother's account; on
his own be seemed not to care. A More
frank, openhearted boy I never saw.—
He toed his story; and though I ques
tioned him pretty severely-, he Wa4COll

1: Lyell says, in his Manual of Geol.
ogy, Appleton's edition. 1856 page Me
" It has pow been ascertained that the
rising and sinking of extensive portions
of the earth's crust, whether insensibly,
or by a repetition of sudden shocks, .4
'part of the- actual course of nature "
and on page consistent with
human experience, that - land should
rise gradually in some Rinces and be
depressed in others. bush changes
have actually occurred in our own days
and are 'now in progttse, having been
accompanied, in sotuncases, by violent
convulsions, while in . tothers they hate
proceeded so ineensibl as to have beSn
ascertainable only by the meet careful
scientific observations made at consid-'
erable intervals of timg." And again
on page 71—" The dry rand consists in
Igreat part of strata formed originally at
the - bottom of the sea, and has been
made to emerge and attain its present
height by a force acting from beneath."
Awl in Bakewell's Geology, edited
by Dr. Silliman, page the author
says—" We are carried back to a period
when the waters' of the Ocean have
covered the summits of our highest
mountains, and are irresistibly com
pelled to admit one of two conclusions
—either that' the sea hab retired and
sunk far Lelow its former level, or that'
some power operating from beneath has
lifted, up the •lislands and continents,
with their hills and mountaius -from
the watery abyss to their present eleva
tion above the sprface." And on page
17—" The great convusions which have
at distant periotie changed the ancient
surface of the globe and reduced it from
a,cliaotle, to its present habitable state,
were not, it is reasonable to believe, ef
fected by the blind fury of tumultuous
and conflicting elements, but were the
resultnf determined laws, directed by
the same wisdom, which regulates ev
ery part of the external universe."
This is the doctrine now advanced by
all or nearly all our geologists—that'the
irregularities of the surface of our
earth aro generally the result of up
heaval effected by some power acting
from beneath.
The question naturally arise—what
is that power? \Vc will endeavor to
nnswer it before we got through. )
2. It has been ascertained by a .large
number oll,observations made at differ-
eut times aud in different places, that
the magnetic pole and the geographical
pole are net coincident—that is that tne
north ' end of the magnetic accede
in the - .:`,;'grthern Hemisphere points
down to aline spot, south of. the north
ern geographical pole an tithe south end
of the needle in the southern hernia
phere points down to tome' spot north
of the southern pole. .
A number of que s tions hero suggest
themselves. What is magrintism ? 'Why
does the magnetic needle 'take the po
sition it assumes, substantlafiy parallel
to the axis of the earth ? What is there
In the interior of the earth and in _he
"magnetic Zone'' t hat attracts the nee
dle? And is the attracting force interi
or or exterior ?
13. There is another physical pheno 1 ,
enon, culled electricity, and the qu -'
tion suggeSts itsel f,—w hat ieeleetricity?l,
and what connection has it with ma g- ,
netism? . (
4. The polar, -
auroral, or norther 1
lights, as they are differently called, are
also among the Mysteries of Science.—
Prof. Loomis says there is an ,auror 1 -
belt or zone within which these light /
appear to arise, mat that near the eon /
ire of this belt is the magnetic pole.
What are these polar lights? Wh t
connection have they with the magu t
ic needle or magnetic pule? What c -
nectiOn with electricity? Why t. e
necessity of the contincouscoi)per wire?
Nltly not some method be di m covered by ,
.which one may converse wl 11 others' t
a d i stance without the niq f machin
ery,? ,or rather are not a'kl the opera
tions of nature carried on y mechan

5. Another mystery is the physiolog
ical relation man bears to the earth be
inhabits. There aro minute animal
eulea and even.larger organized exis
tences that are para..-:itical to man and
cease to live When removed from his
burly. Is not man also parasitical to
tfie earth ? and Lithe relation of man to
the earth +inaloguns to the parasitical
reltition of the animalcules to the body
of man ? . • _
Mau possessea tue power of locpino-.
tion—and so does the el:rib—it moves
daily oti its axis and yearly arouud the
sun. Man's iOOOITICtiOn is the result of
an internal' will and power acting in
concert with external intluenues. Is
the earth's locomotion analogous? or is
it caused w hulk/ by external. influences?
I said above I would answer a certain
question. niqutSstioneof natural Sol
•4nce was ever fully answered. For in
stance I am. asked what r hold in my
luind; I reply, an opal. What ideas
trs my answer given the questioner?
Suppose I say it is . a stone made up of
an infinite nuuAwr of DiatolnacEe.—
What are Dia*torno...llow, when ! ,did
thieft exist? lion: was the stone made
by them? Question n and answer, may
succeed each other to the utmost
tent of man's knowledge and the tint
question lacks almost an infinity of be
ing answered. When wo eau answer
the great question of what and how and
whence, we are approximating very
near the Infinite.
Man is progressive and destined to a
high position in the universe of exis
tences, and though he may never atttpal
to infinite knowledge, yet ho may, Iti
tlie-everlasting ages of progress apprqx
inuite the Infinite. J. EMl“tYe
