Lead Poisons. M. Flaudin,qf Paris, gave an account to tho Academy of the result of a series of experiments undertaken by him, with a view of ascertaining the effects produced by oxide of zinc, carbonate of lead and. sulphate of lead, on the animal economy. The presentation of the Monty on prize to M. Leclarei has borne testimony to the interest taken by the Academy in the substitution of oxide of zinc for carbonate of lead in painting. As no experiments had yet been undertaken to determine "the question whether the manufacture or use of oxide of zirjc was divested of all injurious, consequences to the animal economy, and as some persons had stated that the slow and repeated absorption of zinc was as injurious as that of lead, M. Flaudin determined to settle the question by having recourse to the following experiments: Some years since, M". do Route proposed to substitute sulphate of lead for carbonate of that metal, in painting, &c fle considered lhat as the sulphate...

Important Discovery. At the last meeting of the Horticultural Society, London, various dried vegetables, such as peas, haricot beans, Brussels sprouts, carrots and turnips, &c, were exhibited from Peyrusset,' Moller . & Co., of Paris. These were stated to have been dried by a process peculiar to M. Gannal the celebrated embalmer of animal substances. This process is understood briefly, to consist in dividing the larger vegetables into pieces, and placing them in an apparatus into which dried air is driven^" until they have parted with all the water, and have become perfectly dry. In this condition they may be preserved for any length of time, and it is said their flavor is not at all interfered with, inasmuch, as nothing is taken from them except the water they contained, and that, after they are cooked they are just as gpod as when fresh gathered. If these facts, therefore, are borne out by experience, the discovery is a very important one, even as regards v...

Tbe Sleep of Plants. The way in which sleep is shown in the vegetable-kingdom is infinitely more variable than jiraong animals. Man throws himself"prostrate; the camel places its .bead Between the forelegs, and birds roost .-. their head beneath the wing. Beyond these are few remarkable differences. But- in plaints there is no end to the curious and beautiful diversity which rewards the seeker of Nature's mysteries. Some plants droop their leaves at night, the flat part be--coming flacid and pendulous. Others, of the kind called " compound/' as clover and vetches, close their leaflets together in pairs, and occasionally, the whole leaf .droops at the same time. The three leaflets ofc\6-ver bring their faces to the outside, and so form a little triangular pyramid,- whose apex is the poiritof union between the leaflets and theirjstalks. : Lupines, which have leaves resembling a seventy-fingered hand without, a palm, fold thera together like a lady's halfclosed parasol. \ Chick...

Oil Dancing. Dr. Fitch, in. one of jhis lectures on the uses of the lungs, and on the mode of pre* serving health,: says : -| " Dancing:' is the king and queen of indoor exercises.. It is suitable for all classes, all agps, both sexes, i Itjis oneof the most ancient, arid one of the moist salutary. r I do not speak of i, it as a dissipation, but as an exhilirating; and valuable exercise. Among the exercises, it is .second to none. It is extremely suitable for invalids and fdr consumptives. I have known one of the worst cases of consumption I ever knew, cured by dancing alone, practised: daily for many months. The cure was permanent and complete. - \ - " " It is deplorable that dancing and amuses ments of nearly all kinds should have fallen under the ban of the clergy, and should be preached against as. sinful. It is doubtful whether the morals of mankind are benefitted by forbidding all amusements, and it is most certain that the health of thousands is sacrificed by it. Who ...
