Influence of Inventions on Social Life. The following is a condensed abstract of a recent lecture by James T. Brady, Esq., delivered before the Machanics Institue, of this city, on. the .above subject. He began with an extract from a popular author,who complains that history has been more employed in recording the crimes of ambition and the ravages of conquerors, than preserving the remembrance of those who have improved science and the arts. He said that it is melancholy to reflect that the great me¬ chanics who constructed the mighty works which yet attest the power and taste of Egypt, Greece, and Rome, are nameless to their posterity. Wher,e m.en, have improved in comfort and happiness, it has not been by the action of government, nor any peculiar capacity of race, so much as by their own struggles against unjust restraints. Yet no political change could greatly ameliorate their social condition. This improvement was reserved for mechanical genius and skill, which we should a...

THE SPROUT FAMILY The Sprouts were exceedingly numerous ir the village of ArrowfonK which is situate; about fifteeen miles above j^lesbnry Falls and were quite wealthy. They had seltlei: the place, having removed from the eastern part of Pennsylvania some twenty years before, in. number, then, about a half a dozer families, and now almost every respectable looking sign-board in the place has the name of Sprout on it, and two-thirds of- the farms around were called Sprout farms, in consequence of being or having been owned by them. They were a thriving:, but close-deal¬ ing and cautious set of men ; always active and enterprising in matteis relating to theii .own interest—honest, but exceeding exact in ¦their dealings with others and each other and possessing-just about as much public spirit, generosity" , and charitable feeling, as is common to that class of men. In their emigration they had left behind them but one solitary branch of the family; and that one being poor and ...

The Shadow of Death. We have rarely met with anything more beautiful than the following, which we find in an exchange paper: "All that live must die Passing through Nature to Eternity. Me» seldom think of the great event of Death until the dark shadow falls across their own path, hiding forever from their eyes the face of the loved ones whose living smi'.e was the sunlight of their existence. Death is the great antagonism of Life, and the cold thought of the tomb is the skeleton in all our feasts. VVe do not want Jo go through the dark valley althongh its passage may lead to Paradise, and with Charles Lamb, we do no! wish to lie down in the mouldy grave, even with the kings and princes for our bed fellows. But the fiat of Nature is inexorable. There is no appeal or reprieve from the greal Law that dooms us all to dust. We nourish and fade like the leaves of the forest.and the fairest flower that blooms and withers in a day has not a frailer hold on life than the might .iest mona...

Necessity of Sleep. No person of active mind should try to prevent sleep, which, in some persons, only comes when rest is indispensable to the continuance of health, in fact, sleep on .ee jn twenjy-four hours is as essential to the exisenceof mamalia as the momentary respiration of fresh air. The most unfavorable condition for sleep cannot prevent its approach. Coachmen slumber on their coachesand couriers on their horses, while soldiers fall asleep on the field of battle, amid all the noise of artillery and the tumult of war.— During the retreat of Sir John Moore, several of the British soldiers' were reported to have fallen asleep upon the marchand . yet they continued walking onward. The most violent.passion and excitement cannot preserve'even powerful minds from sleep; thus Alexander the Great slept on the field of Arabela, and Napoleon on that of Austerlitz. Even stripes and torture connot keep off sleep, as criminals have been known to sleep on the rack. Noises which serve...

Dead Subscribers. The story below has been going the rounds of the press for several years: and as it can lose nothing by being old, we give it for the benefit of non paying patrons, in the hope that they will save us the trouble of publishing their obituaries; by making immediate payment : A long winded subscriber to a rewspaper, after repeated dunnings, promised that the bill should be paid by a certain day if he was alive. The day passed over and no money reached the office. In the next number, thereafter of the newspaper, the editor inserted among the deaths a notice of .his subscriber 's departure from this life. " Pretty soon after the announcement, the subject of it appeared to the editor—not with a pale and ghastly countenance usually aseribed to apparitions, nor did he wait to be spoken to, but broke silence. "What sir, did you mean by publishing my deajth.!" "Why, sir, I mean what I mean when ] publish the death of any person, yiz : to let the world know that he is d...

A. Faithful Girl A-caseof woman ' s devotion has recently been brought to our knowledge, which certainly equals any thing that we have ever met with in the realms of romance. The circumstances occurred in this city, and are perfectly well authenticated. While the small pox was raging here a few weeks ago, a young man employed in a store.on Lake street was seized with the disease. It was, of course, improper for him to remain there, and the peopie >vith whom he lived, who were distant relatives of his, refused ' to permit him to slay in their house. The result was. that be was' taken to the pest-house.. - It so happened' that he wag engageti- to be married to a. most estimable and amiable young lady. No sooner did she hear of his condition than she determined at once that she would nurse him. She underwent vaccination, and then went where they had taken her betrothed, to the pest-house. Here she found hjm,-;alqne, sick, wretched, -deserted by all the world. And here sh...

THE LATEST FOREIGN NEWS. The "War in the Crimea.—Severe Fighting before Sevastopol.—Reported death, of Omar Pasha. The Nashville arrived at New Yoik on Sumfay last, with Liverpool dates to the 7th inet. Political affairs throughout Europe remain unaltered. The Vienna Conference had adjourned over the holidays. The impression is daily becoming stronger that there is nothing left but to fight it out. A despatch from Berlin dated Friday, the 6th, states that the Russian party is predominant there, and that Prussia will most likely throw herself into the arms of the €2ar, in case of an unfavorable result of the Confer rence. There has been a surcession of sanguinary conflicts between -the French and Russians before Sebastopol, for the possession of the Rifle ambuscade pits, with varying success, but much loss. The latest reported battle occurred on the night of the 23d, and in which 3000 men were killed and wounded; but no details have been received. The Rnssians as well as the Alli...

Farmers' Prospects. . The New York Tribune and Philadelphia Bulletin, two of our most reliable and enterprising exchanges, are of opinion that the present exhorbitant prices of flour and grain, " cannot possibly fall," and must almost infalliably tise, and urges our farming community to " sow all the grain they can. " We do not expect our agricultural friends to realize all i; at is anticipated by our cotemporavies ; but shall be grealy disappointed if produce does not command an unusually high price for years to coma. Most heartily do we therefote join in "saying sow all the grain you can." It will prove beneficial aJike to the farmer and the country. The Bulletin very appropriately remarks, that tbe wheat fields of the south of Russia are shut out from the access of commercial Europe.—Very probably they are less productive than usual owing to the heavy drafts of peasantry into military service. Ergland and France are largely occupied in destroying men and property " , and the ...
