QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS. | xltpercrttic.—" In reading a late number of Household Words, I came across the expression ' argentiferous silver.* The nmgaziue is one of such high standing that I can hardly suppose that any of its writers would be guilty of tautology, and as the care with which it is got tin precludes the possibility of a typographical error, I am almost forced to the conclusion that the expression is a correct one. Will you favor me with your views on the matter ?"—The expression is undoubtedly a tautological one, as much as it would be to say " auriferous gold." Argentiferous means nicer-bearing, and therefore cannot properly be applied to the metal itself The expression as intended to be written was probably " argentiferous ore." There is no publication got up with such care as to preclude the possibility of a typographical error. It is but a short time since the very magazine of which you write, stated that sea water contained about forty per cent, of salt! Those ot it...

GENERAL GOSSIP. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 7 September 1856

GENERAL GOSSIP. * * A New York correspondent of one of the Boston papers, remarking upon the prevailing passion for expensive churches, says that there is hardly a church now to be found, that men of moderate means can attend ; that most of the downtown churches have removed their places, and costly and showy structures have been erected, greatly increasing the pew-rents. Hundreds of families in New York, genteel but not wealthy, are without church or society, because they cannot afford to pay the pew-rents. A man can do as he pleases with his own house, but those who erect costly places of worship and put the expenses of public devotion above the reach of the average of society, do a great wrong. * * The Catholic party in Austria begins at last to be aware that, notwithstanding the many concessions made to it by the State, the concordat is rather a compromise on the part of the State than a return to Romanistic principles. The ablest and most popular member of the ministry is a Pro...

FUN, FACT AND FANCY. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 7 September 1856

FUN, FACT AND FANCY. No case of loss of life by lightning has been known in an iron ship or iron building—a fact which should dispel the common belief, that metals are dangerous, from an erroneously supposed attraction for lightning. Metals conduct lightning, but the attractive power probably does not extend over a great surface. Vessels furnished with lightning conductors have never suffered from lightning, if the conductors were up and the continuity uninterrupted to the water. Iron wire, costing less than a cent per foot, in oiie single piece, is sufficiently large for a lightning conductor. Any mechanic of ordinary capacity can put up a rod. Glass irftulators, with screw fastenings are to be used. Bright Horns and Gloomy. —Ah, this beautiful world ! I know not what to think of it. Sometimes it is all sunshine and gladness, and heaven itself lies not far off, and then it suddenly changes, and is dark and sorrowful, and the clouds shut out the day. In the lives of the saddest of u...

MY BOYS. ANSON G. CHESTER The eldost lias not llnislicd yet The third of his young years : His eyeß arc blue as violets. And bright as evening's tears; His hair is golden as the beams That usher in the dawn ; And softer than the tassels are That plume the growing corn; His voice is sweeter to my car Than lutes or woodland streams; It rings amid my cares by day Aud echoes in my dreams. He has a hundred pretty ways Which I delight to see; 1 love him next to Heaven and her Who gave the child to me ; And when he nestles to my heart, And calls me by my name — The only name he knows for mo— 1 sigh no mare for fame; But think that, having such a gem To wear upon my breast. Contented should I be to leave The chaplets for the rest. My other darling's little life In months is counted yet. His eye is lustrous as a star. And black as burnished jet, HisT-Hs brown, When Autumn's frosts begin, Four teeth have blossomed id his mouth, A dimple dots his chin ; His smile is like the smile that plays U...

The Last of His Race. J. F. SMITH, CHAPTER XXVl.—Costinced. During the day. Sir Mark called in Harley street. The master of the mansion was absent, consequently he found only Marion, Mist Atkin, and his old schoolfellow in the drawing-room to receive him. After inquiring after the health of the ladies, be apologised for his sudden departure from the theatre on the previous evening, which he explained by stating that he had recognized in one of the opposite boxes an old fi iend, with whom he had made an appointment several days previously, and which appointment up to that moment had escaped his memorj-. Whilst offering this excuse, he fixed his eyes constantly upon Dick, as if to read the impression his words produced upon him. Despite the caution he had just received from Mr. Barnard, our hero received them us truth. Not so Miss Atkin ; but then the lady had passed her fortieth year, and his former schoolfellow was not yet quite seventeen. " You smile," said the baronet, slightly di...

Annihilation is Impossible. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 7 September 1856

Annihilation is Impossible. It is bow ascertained, and is capable of the clearest proof, that tic simple elements of which a'i substances are composed, cannot by any eoncei vablc means lie destroyed. They may indeed be so changed as to present not the least resemblaoceto their previous forms—they may be so mingled with other bodies that their identity cannot be traced— they may be disispated into invisible vapor, and be apparently annihilated—but we learn from the science of chemistry that in every change the same elements remain inextinguishable and unaltered. The phenomena of solution aflords some of the obvious illustrations of complete changes produced in bodies, without causing their annihilation. Tho solution of a lump of sugar in a cup of tea may be adduced as a familiar example. Were v person to witness such a pheßomena for the first time, he would consider the sugar totally lost, and he might be disposed to attribute its disappearance to magic. But the presence of the sugar...

A Valuable Suggestion. [Newspaper Article] — Wide West — 7 September 1856

A Valuable Suggestion. A gentleman named W. D. Porter, writes to the N. Y. Herald that the following will, in many cases, detect the perpetrators of a murder. "It is well known that all objects are actually painted or impressod on the retina of the eye. Should a |icrson die a violent death, the objects before the eve ut the time remain impressed on the retina. If the covering of the eye be scruiKHl down thin, and a powerful magnifying glass applied, this image will tie distinctly seen. This was the first discovery of the daguerreotype. Any scieutilic physician can do this."
