evening star. Washington ; __ THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 1853. The Kiiiioual Monument. We very much regret to learn that the articles copie J into the Star of Monday last, from the Norfolk iVetcs and Boston Postt are considered by some of our friends to be in opposition to the erection of the Natioual Monument to Washington. We beg to assure ail our readers that such is by no means the case. We are in no way opposed to the National Monument. l*s managers are among our warmest per sonal friends, and most worthy citizens. What we copied was more designed to call attention to the subject than to express any views of our own. We are extremely anxious for the speedy construction of the monument, and will do all we can with pro priety to hasten on that great national and patriotic work. We would not keep back a dollar nor a stone from being contributed to swell the mighty column that should rise in this capital city to the memory of him who was t4fir3t in war, first in peace, and first in the...

daily evening star. Printer*. Printers, it i3 said, universally die at an ?%arly age. This is doubtless caused by the noxious effluvia nrising from the types, the \rant of exercise, constant confinement, and ihe late hours to which their work is pro longed. There is no other class ef human beings whose privileges are as few, whose labor is as continuous, and whose wages are as inadequate, as Printers. If a "typo" be a man of family, he is debarred of the privilege of enjoying their society at all times, because his hours of labor are almost endless, and his moments of leisure so few that they must be spent in sleep to recruit his exhausted energies, and prepare him for a renewal of his toils. Poor fellow, he l knows nothing of sociability, and from ne- j oessity, is as clearly shut out from the : world as a convict in a prison cell. Truly i he is in the world, yet kuows not of it. Toil, toil, toil, by night and day, is his fate, j until premature old age ends his existence. For the ...

DAILY EVENING STAR. [From the Traveller.] Cause of (he Explosion of theao-call ed Burning Fluids* The atmosphere, as is well known, con tains oxygen gas, in the proportion of one fifth part, by measure. It is also well known that if hydrogen gas be mingled with atmospheric air, it becomes explosive vrhen flame is applied. If the hy drogen gas be added in the proportion of two measures to one of oxygen, and especi ally if the whole quantity be large, the ig rited gases will explode-with great violence. The same is true if the illuminating gns be substitute] for hjdrogen gas; but that gas, being composed of hydrogen and carbon, requires mere oxygen gas. If a drop of ether be agitated in a bottle of oxygen gas, its vap< r will instantly mix with the gas, cud then a burning candle applied at the j mouth of the bottle will cause a loud, and I it may ho a dangerous explosion. | A gla<-s globe of two quarts capacity which i had be?-n rinsed with alcohol, merely shaken : in it auu t; ...

EVENING STAR. WASHINGTON: SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 12, 1853. Tiie Note of Time. The sweet poet ef the night once beauti fully sang? "We lake no note of time, but by its los?." This is splendid in poetry, and in the sense of the gifted bard it is lamentably true. But there is a sense in which we are to keep note of time by its gains as well as by its losses. The commercial man, the mechanic, the physician, the clergyman, the legislator, the hotel-keeper, and many other classes in society, have each and all a reason for noting time in some other way thin merely by the child's fact that it came, stopped its round of seconds, and then went. With this practical view of men and things before us, we tender our thanks to Facere Bmum?our welcome correspondent in yes terday's Star?for his timely hints about the Illuminated Clock. That is the kind of articles wanted on these subjects of Wash ington improvements. Let us have more of them. We hope that our new coadjutor will not only be able to contin...

daily evening star. Defence of the Poet. The following eloquent remarks are ex tracted from the speech of Sergeant Talfourd, on behalf of the defendant in the celebrated m case of Hetherington vs. Moxon, delivered in London on the 23d of June, 1841. Moxon was prosecuted for the publication of the works of Shelley: "If, however, these are considerations affecting the exercise of human genius on themes beyond its grasp, which we cannot discuss in this place, however essential to the decision of the charge, there is one plain position which 1 will venture to assert: that the poetry which pretends to a denial of God or of immortal life, must contain its own refutation in itself, and sustain what it would deny ! A poet, though never one of the highest order, may 'link vice to a radi ant aDgelhe mny diffuse luxurious indif ference to virtue and to truth ; but he can not inculcate Atheism. Let him strive to do it, and like Balaam, who came to curse, like him he must end in blessing! His ar...

EVENING STAR. WASHINGTON: MONDAY, FEBRUARY 14. 18,3. Thackeray v?? Mills. We very much regret to learn that Mr Thackeray, the English writer ami leetur?r now in iiis Country, has indu'ged himgr-lf in some bitter and violent remuks on the equestrian statue of Gen. Andrew Jackson, otreof the Presidents of the Uuited States. Mr. Thackeray, we are informed, was in vited to pass around the L ifayette Square, in Washington, where Mills's statue of Jack 8 n is erected, lie took occasion, as we arc told, to express the most decided disapproiu iion of the statue, as a work uf art. There appeared to be nothing, or sc rcely anything about it, that pie tsed him. The horse was out of proportion. The tail was too large. The posture was not classical. The Aui? ri can uniform of Jackson (perhaps reminding Mr. Thackeray of a certain battle fought near a certain place called, we believe, Xcw O-tear s,) was very objectionable?very. The noble he?d of the old hero was too erect. 11.3 attitude was too de...

DAILY EVENING STAR. The Boston Ilerald states that a young taorried lady, living in Dover street, called at & store in Wellington street some time sioce, and m?ide some purchaser. After she bad paid for the articles, the senior p irtuer of the firm asked her to step to the back of the store, nhere he accused her of steal ing some articles, and in the most rude manner proceeded to search her person, bat of course found nothing. The lady upon reaching home was so shocked that she was taken ill of fever, and retnaiued sick for three weeks. The storekeeper heard of this tickness, sent a note apologising lor his rudeness, and requested permission to cull at the house and further explain the matter. One day last week the lady sent word that she would see him on a certain evening. The storekeeper called accordingly, and was shown into the back parlor. Soon after the folding doors were thrown open, aud the husband of the insulted lady led the as tonished shopkeeper, forward into the bri...
