Report of the Indianapolis sunday school Union in approaching to Lay before this society the 7tb annual report of their proceedings and the stale of the school under their care your Board would express their fervent gratitude to the father of All mercies for his preserving care the increased Prosperity and usefulness of the school and that a number of its teachers and scholars have been made members of the visible Church on Earth preparatory we Trust to admittance to the glorious society of heaven. As far As the Board recollect there has been no death for two years a Mong teachers or scholars and when we reflect that the number contained on our books has averaged nearly 200, we Are struck with the great and unusual preserving mercy of our god. And when too we find that 6 scholars fell teachers of whom 7 last year were scholars have the past year made a Public profession of religion we feel an additional reason for and when in addition to this we consider its moral and religious influence on the character of this place and the surrounding country and reflect that another Branch of promising useful Cess the infant class has been added the past year that our teachers by attending weekly a class who have been examined on a lesson in the Union questions and instructed in the management of the school have become bet ter Qualia id to discharge their duly a that a by the by d. And some teachers of this school have formed in Titis and the adjoining counties 30 other schools and that this has served a an excitement to tie formation and a pattern for the organization of still More we shall feel thai through the Blessing of god its benefits have been greater than Man can estimate and we Trust that no moderate expenditures or common exertions will be grudge to continue and extend its blessings. And we wish our citizens distinctly to enumerate As far As can be done the blessings which this school for seven years past has conferred upon this town the Means of education it has afforded to hundreds who would otherwise have grown up in ignorance the fund of information its Library has diffused among ail our families the moral and religious influence he instructions of our school the books of our Library and the tracts and other books distributed As rewards have i redly or indirectly exerted on the whole mass of our population the moral character it has Given our town and the inducement it has thereby held out to additional while on the other hand the influence All this has had in restraining from those demoralizing vices Waluch bankrupt and ruin a comm unit has in a pecuniary calculation More than 100 fold repaid All the expenditures of the school and increased the value of All the real Propf try four to a. These Are a of which some estimate May be formed and when we admit what is very universally attested both in town and country that the Sabbath scholar of a Well conducted school who attends no other school learns fully As fast As the one who constantly attends a Day school and does not attend the Sabbath school we have a data from Winch to calculate its pecuniary advantages in the single article of intelligence. For if a child s time be Worth on Ati average when boarded and clothed fifty cents a week. And the tuition 2,00 a Quarter it will amount to f34,00 a year and the expense of books will probably be fifty cents a scholar which will fully of qual All the expense of books for study Library and Reward books for the Sabbath school. There will then be a Clear saving of 34,00 a year on every scholar who attends the Sabbath school and who attends no other. But As a Large portion of our scholars also attend other schools say they average but half that pecuniary advantage it will then he on a school of one Hundred scholars which we think this has averaged since its commencement �1700 a year or for the seven years of its existence if to knowledge acquired is Worth what it costs at common schools there has been a Clear saving to the town by this school in the single article of Intel Herice to the Slub of 11,900 and it has probably been twice that advantage in restraining from the expense attending vicious practices so thai should we say its pecuniary saving had been to this town More than $30,000, and that it has added fl0,000 to the value of real property we should probably be under rating its pecuniary advantages. But who can fix a Price on moral character or estimate the value of the souls it has been the Means in the lord s hands of bringing to the knowledge of salvation. We have called these things to mind at this time because there is an absolute necessity that the funds of the school should be increased for although a Liberal annual subscription Vas taken up three years since owing to the negligence which Many have evinced in making payments and perhaps to some negligence in collecting the school has for two years past been running in debt and now owes to the Indianapolis depository 28.75 to the Marion county Bible society 9.32 to the tract depository,6.62 due for Magazine a 3.50 for Blank books amp a. About 2.00 amount ,50.19. And it is calculated that at least $50 More will be required to pay he balances due the scholars for two years past so that at least Loo will now be required Independent of the expenses of the school for the year to come. Of this if a new subscription be taken up probably 30 May be received on old arrearage and 70 would be required to be raised. This al though a considerable sum sinks into such insignificance when compared with even the pecuniary advantage of the sunday school to our town that we should be very unwise to relinquish the school or alter those general principles under which it has hitherto so Well succeeded. By order of the Board. Isaac Coe pres t. J. M. Ray Sec by. Fifi i annual report of the Indianapolis tract society. In presenting to the fifth annual meeting of the Indianapolis tract society a report of its operations for the past year your Board while they regret that so Little has been done by that Branch which contemplates the collection of funds for the general object of tract operations and the distribution of tracts among the members would gratefully acknowledge the divine Blessing in increasing the funds and the operations of the depository Branch As Well As in the addition of a third Branch intended to distribute a tract monthly to each family in our place. And Klinl the meeting May More Folly undo stand the subject the Board would state that each of these three branches Are conducted by different agencies and supported by different funds. 1st. The annual subscription is appropriated to the Purchase of tracts and each subscriber has heretofore been entitled to receive six pages for every cent paid leaving four pages for gratuitous distribution by the agent. This course was taken in accordance with the practice of the Parent society and other auxiliaries. But this practice having lately been changed by the Parent society and the auxiliaries around us lately organized by their agents being formed on the principle of giving 10 pages for a cent or a bound volume of 400 pages Lor 50 cents leaving nothing in the hands of the agent it seems desirable our Constitution should receive a correspondent amendment that he members of our society May receive Ahe qual amount in tracts for the sum paid As members of other societies in our Vicinity and leaving it to the Benevolence of the individual members gratuitously of distribute to others s kit portion of tie tracts they receive is to them shall seem a duty and a privilege. The second or depository Branch was organized three years since and a Small sum subscribed for a permanent fund on which $28 75 have been paid and in december last at a meeting called during the visit of the a Merican tract society s agent and after an address by him delivered a bout $100 additional fund was subscribed of which $80 was promptly collected and paid Over to the agent for the depository by the treasurer increasing the fund to $108 75. Besides which 10,000 pages of tracts were year before last presented the depository by Parent society but this being from a fund intended for the Supply of the people of the Valley of the Mississippi the agent has thought it his duty while the Stock subscribed for the fund of the depository is always kept Good to make donations where he believed Good would thereby be done from this donation of the Parent society or from the Small Advance which arises Between the 10 per cent discount allowed As at Cincinnati and the Cost of transportation and other incidental expenses and accordingly probably 4 or 5000 pages have thus been distributed the past year. The third Branch intended for monthly distribution was lately organized during the visit of the Rev. Cyrus w. Conant another agent from the Parent society and $9 50 subscribed towards the object and which we Trust will be much increased when the subscription shall be More fully submitted to the liberality of our fellow citizens. The selection of the tracts appointment of distributors and every thing relating to this Branch is to be managed by a committee of 3 persons of different religious denominations appointed by the Board but As the offices of your Board were about expiring they have left the appointment of this committee to the Board now to be elected and should the same blessings attend the monthly distributions Here As have been experienced in other places we Trust the friends of morality and religion will never abandon it. Having thus briefly stated the general objects of each Branch of the society the Board proceed to give a statement of the finances and operations of each. To the report of the agent of the first Branth which will be read the Board refer the meeting merely staling that its Stock of Cash and tracts on hand after paying a debt of one Dollar is $11 55. The depository has during the past year purchased tracts children s tracts bound volumes and other works published by the american tract society to the amount of $247 97 paid for transportation from Cincinnati 8 77 whole Cost $256 74 and has sold to the value of $142 19, leaving a balance on hand of $187 22, of which including transportation the value of $149 68 were received the 3d instant and the depository has now a general assortment of almost every work published by the american tract society among which Are Baxter s Call and Dodridge s Rise and Progress at 37h cents each. The agent for the depository has receiver during the past year for sales �112 o4 on old subscriptions o depository 50, on new subscriptions so of 82 50 amount $195 04 has paid out balance due agent at last year s report $ 11 13 balance due american tract society per last report 30 84 paid Cincinnati tract depository for tracts 120 99 paid for transportation 8 77 paid for Case for tracts 8 45 amount $180 18 balance in agent s hands a 14 86 there is due this depository Abr tracts sold $4175 in agent s hands in Cash and orders on Parent society 14 86 value of Trad on hand 187 22 value of Case purchased for tracts 8 45 from this deduct debt of depository to Cincinnati depositary $252 28 126 98 balance Stock on hand $125 30 amount received from subscribers to depository 108 75 Advance $ 16 55 to the Stock should be added a bout $20 which it May be calculated will yet be paid on subscription making the amount of Stock fl45 30.�? and from the �16 55 Advance should be deducted about $5000 pages of tracts Worth $5 00 remaining of the 10,000 pages donated by the Parent society. Of the amount sold More than half has been for Sabbath school libraries and the monthly distribution of a tract for punctual attendance to each scholar who attends every Sabbath of a Calendar month and these tracts it is believed Are doing much Good. In conclusion the Board observe that the Public mind they believe is far from being sufficiently sensible of the importance of promoting the circulation of Well written religious tracts. As a mean amp ii extending the influence of the gos Iel diffusing Correct moral principles meeting the efforts of infidelity now so extensively making promoting Temperance amp the Observance of the Sabbath above All of converting the soul their effects As continually making known Are invaluable while their cheapness and the ease with which they May be circulated where scarce any other Means of doing Good can reach recommend them As a Means peculiarly Well adapted to the situation of our country. All of which is respectfully submitted. Isaac Coe Prest. J. M. Ray so y. From the journal of health. Swimming. Swimming has with great propriety been pronounced the purest exercise of health Quot combining in itself the advantages of muscular exertion with those of bathing. It is to be observed however that there is perhaps no exercise which Calls into violent action a greater number of Muscles and which therefore so quickly induces fatigue. It is on this account Independent of the effects of the cold water in which the body is immersed an amusement but ill adapted to the aged and those of an enfeebled and delicate Constitution. Even by the Young the healthful and robust it should not be carried too fat lest injury rather than Benefit result from in it is during the summer season a Lone that this species of exercise can with propriety be indulged in. Although the Savage in Northern climates is said to plunge with impunity at every season of the year into the coldest Stream yet the health if not the life of an individual reared amid the luxuries and refinements of civilized society would be endangered were be to attempt a similar course. The morning is undoubtedly the period Best adapted for the exercise of swimming but by Many an hour or two before Sunset has been preferred a the water having then acquired a considerable degree of warmth from the Sun s rays. When the former period is found peculiarly inconvenient the latter May be adopted rather than the exercise should be entirely abandoned. During the Middle portions of the Day when the heat is oppressive to swim in an open River would be attended with considerable Dan Ger. Like every other species of Active exercise the one under consideration is to be abstained from until several hours after eating. It is important to select for the amusement of swimming a pure run Ning Stream of Sufle Iceni depth and if possible with a Sandy Shore and Bottom. Stagnant and thickly shaded pools particularly in the neighbourhood of marshes ought carefully to be shunned. A ridiculous and to a certain extent dangerous idea prevails with Many that the body should be allowed to become perfectly Cool previously to entering the water. On the contrary it will very generally be found highly advantageous to partake of a degree of exercise before immersion sufficient to produce a gentle increase of the circulation of the blood and slight augmentation of the heat of the body. But while in the earlier stages of exercise before a copious per spi ration has dissipated the heat or the system has become exhausted by fatigue an individual May fearlessly plunge into the water this would be Replete with danger if Practised after exercise has been urged so far As to occasion profuse perspiration with Lan Gour and fatigue. Under such circumstances the heat of the body fast sinking and immersion in cold water would produce a severe and protracted chill. Immediately on leaving the water the body should always be wiped perfectly dry by friction with a coarse Towel and after dressing a gentle degree of exercise ought to be taken. Nothing is indeed More prejudicial to health than sitting or remaining inactive subsequently to bathing. Walking briskly to and from the place selected for swimming particularly if it be a reasonable distance from the dwelling will in most cases be the Best exercise that can be adopted before entering and after coming out of the water. It was not our intention in the pros ent article to teach the Art or de scribe the various modes of swimming with Franklin Saint Pierre Saltzman and others we Are of opinion however that such instruction should constitute an item in the education of every child not merely to enable him to enjoy a beneficial exercise but to insure his own safety and to enable him to minister to that of others in cases of accidental submersion. Is from the Troy daily Sentinel. The mysteries of Art. The successful eng rafting of the grape Vine which had so Long baffled the skill of Nursery men in this country and of the Vigene Rons in Europe so As to make the operation As sure and As easy As in the Well known operation of in grafting on Trees was so far As i know first made known to the american Public by my late worthy Friend j. J. Dufour of the Vevay Swiss Vineyard Indiana. In his very excellent treatise Quot the a Merican Vine Dresser s guide Quot 12mo, p. 317, Cincinnati 1826, the result of 25 years experience in the grape culture in the United states at Page 235, he fully describes this Mode. The author of this work died at Vevay in february 1827, some years previous to which he had instructed me in his Mode of eng rafting and which i have found by experience to be perfectly successful. As the author made no secret of it so i have not but have told every body that applied taking care to inform Thenn who info nned me. Dufour is dead every body about Here now practises upon his plan but no one so far As i can discover remembers the Man and Many Are claiming it As a sort of mystery of their own his plan is to saw the Root of the stalk into which Yogi would insert the graft under ground bore a Small Hole into the end of the Root of the stalk into which you would insert the graft with one or two buds then keeping the Root Well covered with Mellow Earth and the upper Bud just even with the surface and the whole process is accomplished. I never water my grafts and 1 have bad them to grow 15 feet the main Vine the first year besides bearing ten to thirty Bunches of grapes. Some care is necessary in rubbing off the superfluous shoots but the operation is easy and As sure As the inserting of a graft into an Apple or plumb tree. If the Root Slock is of a vigorous growth and the graft Well chosen having the Wood of the two last years growth upon it and from a bearing Vine the graft will always Bear fruit the first year and the Quality of the graft. Dufour had another Mode common in France Germany and Switzerland by splitting the Root stalk and inserting the graft in the shape of a Thia wedge either end Wise or vertically but this is less certain of Success judging by my own experience. He sometimes put in two or three grafts into one Large Root stalk As these May be inserted any where in the Wood of the Vine As Well As in the pith or Centre. A Sharp tool such As a Centre bit tool is to be preferred to a Gimblet because it cuts the Wood More smoothly. Let it he Dufour s Mode Ofeno grafting and no secret and no matter How Many derive a Benefit from it you May publish this if you think proper. Very respectfully yours Horatio Gates Spafford.
