They have increased in Fize and living in the midst of abundance they have become fat so that on Shore they make their Way with difficulty and As j they arc yet unable to Fly the greatest care is required to save them from their numerous enemies. They grow apace and now the burning Days of August arc Over. They Are Able to Fly with ease from one Shore to another and As each successive night the Hoar frosts cover the country and the streams Are closed Over by the ice the family joins that in their neighbourhood which is also joined by others. At length they see the Advance of a Snow storm when the ganders with one Accord sound the order for their Dei Sarture. After Many wide circling the flock has risen High in the thin air and an hour or More is spent in teaching the Young the order in which they Are to mine.

The fat with which they arc loaded played around them. The old bachelors and old maids Wilether in regret or not caring to be disturbed by the Bustle quietly moved aside and Lay Down on the grass or Sand at some distance from the rest and whenever the flocks Rose in Wing or Betook themselves to the water these forlorn Birds always kept behind. This Mode of preparing for the Breeding season has appeared to Nie at their departure has rapidly wasted they Are fatigued and experience the keen gnawing of hunger but now they spy a wide Estuary towards which they direct their course.

From Blac friars Bridge on a dark Winter s night it is no uncommon thing to see forty or fifty devils blazing at one time upon the Coal barges along the Shore throwing a lurid Glare around and exhibiting the dark grim profiles of the Coal heavers like demons in the distance. The scene is one of a singular description and is not devoid of interest by imagining old father thames to be the fabled styx a person May fancy himself contemplating the orgies of the imps of darkness in the infernal regions.

The bounced on this theme but they were Mere rhapsodies without order or connection. We wish to see or hear the subject treated rationally philosophically analytically and synthetically. It is a topic excellently adapted to lecturing As it admits of extremely pleasant illustrations. Suppose a Good looking Young professor should get up a course of lectures of this kind for the Especial Benefit of a lady audience we presume he would meet encouragement. Illustrations it is Well known Are the life of lectures and it would be incumbent on the gentleman who should undertake the delivery of such lectures to exemplify the effects of kissing on the lips of each of the girls who composed the auditory. Pew persons suspect How Many ramifications what a variety of detail this subject will admit of. Kisses May be distributed in at least a dozen classifications. There is the kiss of Friendship used by gentlemen in France but in England and America chiefly by Young ladies. It is rather a silly insignificant bread and Johnny cake ceremony performed by two individuals of the same sex. The kiss of love Haa More meaning and would itself furnish materials for half the lectures in the course. Then we have the kiss of Charilyn the fraternal and sisterly kiss the parental and the filial kiss the wedding kiss and the kiss of repentance which tiie votary bestows on the altar the kiss compulsory which the child bestows on the Rod with which he has been whipped and the kiss matrimonial which the husband bestows on his wife some months after marriage. All the last mentioned kisses have frequently some dash of bitterness. Then we Bave the kiss of Condoll ment which the Mother gives her child when he has Hurt himself in a kissable part. And lastly we have the traitor s kiss invented by Judas Isca riot and since Practised by million male and female. This 1� but an outline. If any Young gentleman ambitious of acquiring a scientific reputation thinks proper to improve on our hints let Hira announce himself. A lecture room May be had to any part of the City and the girls will not be backward in buying Phil. Ledger. Ladies reception of col. Johnson at Indianapolis. The following ode was delivered by mrs. S. T. Bolton on being introduced to col. R. M. Johnsoh at the residence of or. Basil Brown Indianapolis Indiana on wednesday evening october 14,1840. We bail thee loved chieftain Long Long May it thou live. To receive the warm Welcome that freemen will give. To him who hath of ter a nor offered in vain his life in it Spring time at Liberty s Fane. We be rear d thee no Temple for vain would it be. There s one in each heart sir that s sacred to thee. We be Strown thee no Flowers we be made thee no throne. For the wealth of american hearts is thine own. We Welcome thee scar covered hero and Sage As a Gem of thy country a Star of the age to is a burst of affection spontaneous and free without Art s cold trappings we offer to thee. When the War whoop of Savages rang o or the wild As they Tore from the breast of the Mother her child. When the husband and father As death Dini d his eyes saw the flames of his dwelling ascend to the skies. Then then was a Gath Ringo Brave hearts and True to arms was the cry to the Rescue they flew round thee then they rallied and Neath the Blue sky. They pledged thee to conquer or with thee to die. You met the wild foe where the War weapon s gleam. Was Mirror d in Light on the thames Placid Stream Tecumseh s bet re thee of god Speed thee Well thy weapon was icel do the mighty one fell. The Brave and the Lovely Are Blessing thee now a Halo of glory encircling thy brow. The wide world has heard the loud blast of thy Fame and thousand hearts throb at the sound of thy name. The tribute we bring to thee wealth cannot buy t is a Wreath of affection that never will die but glory has trac d on the Tablet of Fame. Thy bravery our motto our watchword thy name. When our children to heaven in prayer Bend the knee. We will teach them to ask its Best blessings for thee for thee shall their tiny hands Laurel entwine. And the first name we learn them to love shall be thine. To which the colonel replied although Madam i have Ever received from my fellow citizens More notice than my poor services to my country entitled me to expect yet this Assurance of the place i occupy in the hearts of the democratic ladies of Indianapolis overpowers me quite. It brings up shadowy and dim remembrances the realities of which have Long since been buried with the past. In defending my country in the dark hour of danger i Only did what every Brave Man would have done. I voted for the declaration of War in 1812, and i deemed it but my duty to give an evidence by my poor service in the Field of my sincerity in the Council. I have Ever held it True and this Madam but adds another to the Many proofs which during a Long and eventful existence i have found that he who perils his life without a murmur and freely bares his bosom to the storm of War in Quot those times that try men s souls Quot will always meet in the smile and approbation of his country his Best Reward. I shall Ever look Back upon this night As one of the Bright links in memory s Chain. Accept Madam for yourself and fur the democratic ladies of Central Indiana my Heartfelt wishes for your and their Contentment happiness and peace. Measuring Corn. The following rate for ascertaining the Quantity of shelled Corn in a House of any dimensions is by William Murray esq., of South Carolina and was read before the St. John s Colleton agricultural society and communicated by them for publication in the Southern agriculturist. Quot previously levelled the Corn in the House so that it will be of equal depth throughout ascertain the length and breadth and depth of the bulk multiply these dimensions together and their products by 4, then Cut off one figure from the right of the last product. This will give so Many bushels and a Decimal of a Bushel of shelled Corn. If it be required to find the Quantity of ear Corn substitute 8 for 4, and Cut off one As before. Quot Zampi Erin a bulk of Corn in the ear measuring 12 feet Long 11 feet Broad and 6 feet deep there will be 316 bushels and 8 tenths of a Bushel of shelled Corn or 6b3 bushels and 6 tenths of ear Corn As Kos Rob Mir a lib an it no tic Iii id by has just Oce ared in tho Marylou one infirmary.

She waa warned of the painful and even per Ioas Natare of the operation Bat she expressed her Reed ution to sub Mit to it owing to the ardent wish that Ner life might be spared for her Mother s Sake. The operation was accordingly performed in the presence of her Mother and several eminent medical men. It lasted two hours and forty minutes and the magnitude of the Tumour taken from her May be imagined when it contained no less than two Gallons and a half of water. Notwithstanding the Long and painful operation singular to heroic girl never uttered a single cry but at the conclusion tests was observed rolling Down her Cheeks and being desired not to shed them she replied that they were tears of Joy at her Freedom from the incubus which had so As she appeared to be in a sinking condition the medical gentlemen upon a consultation deemed a fresh infusion of blood into her veins absolutely necessary. On making inquiries As to whom they could procure to provide the blood it was ascertained that two men were in an adjoining room one 25 and the other Between 30 and 40 years of age anxiously awaiting the Issue of the operation. Believing them in the first instance to be relatives of the i it Oor girl they were ushered into the room when it turned out that the eldest was her employer for whom she worked at Ahoe binding and the other a Journeyman in the same employ both devotedly attached to the unfortunate girl. On being made acquainted with her state and what was required to be done for the patient they both simultaneously volunteered to Supply the by it from their veins. Much bitterness of feeling and Contention Between them ensued As to which should do so which was put an end to by the decision of the surgeons in the favor of the youngest who Baring his Arm with great Energy exclaimed Quot that he was willing to lose the last drop of his blood to save her the blood was then carefully infused from his Arm into the veins of the poor sufferer till the Young Man fainted from his loss. On their taking place the elder Lover implored permission to Supply the remainder but the girl recovering it was deemed unnecessary. The poor girl began to improve and great Hopes were entertained of her recovery but unfortunately these Hopes were blasted for unknown to the surgeons she was found to be afflicted with a severe diarrhoea which increased until it became a confirmed Case of cholera from the effects of which she died on the fifth Day after the operation. She was sensible to the death bed scene is represented As truly affecting. She expressed a wish to see the Young Man who lost his blood for her. Kissed him bade him Cut off a Luck of her hair and begged him to be kind to her Mother. She then entered into prayers with the Rev. Or.

Diso Lackful the election yesterday at South Pena township while the voting was proceeding quietly a disgraceful attempt was made to create a riot by one of the superintendent a of the Girard College named David Sunderland who headed a gang of bullies procured from the Lover part of the City. The democrats totally Unpi pred and not anticipating any disturbance were beaten and driven from the polls and the whigs attempted to take the ballot Box. This was secured by the democratic judge who secreted himself in the cellar and there remained until the democrats rallied in sufficient Force to restore order when the election quietly proceeded.

The Decimal 4 is used when the object is to find the Quantity in shelled Corn because the Decimal is half of the Decimal 8, and it requires two bushels of ear corp to make one of shelled Corn. In using these rules a half a Bushel May be added for every Hundred that amount of ears results from the substitution of the rustling sound of the Breeze. The least noise brings from him a sound of anger. Should be spy a Raccoon nicking its Way among the grass he walks up to Bun undaunted Day hurls a vigorous blow at him and drives him instantly away.
