Sublimely Ridiculous.—We clip the following pathetic specimens of newspaperial verbosity from the New York Sunday Mercury. The first is from that well-known paper, the Lakcsvillc Express: "We have before us a giant of the vegetable kingdom. Wonderful arc the dcvelopcmcnla called forth from the earth by the searching rays of a vivifying God of Light. Neighbor Fuller has sent us a turnip weighing 10 pounds and a half I" We arc in possession of some other curious selections ; and the next following we give from a spruce Rhode Island journal, descriptive of the 4th of July celebration: ** From the spangled conopy of night were torn the starry gems that illuminate the silken banner of the free. In the full light of day our golden eagle soars above the stars; and ere we crouch to see the stars fade or the eagle fill, may every sub. scriher stop his paper .'" Tlie following i^n't bad—for the Morning Bluster: ** We had scarcely reached the scene, when the lurid heavens grew into one broad...

Chain of Beings.—Women, as we all know, arc the link upward between us and angels, and a wri tcr gives us the links downward, thus:— 11 Bitumen and sulphur form the link between earth and metals—vitrols unite metals with salts—crystallizations connect salts with stones—the amianthus and lytophites form a kind of lie between stones and plants—the polypus unites plants to in' sects—the tube-worm seems to lead to shells and reptiles—the water-serpent and the eel form a passage from reptiles to fish—the anas nigra arc t medium between fishes and birds—the bat and the fly ing. squirrel link birds to quadrupeds—and the monkey equally gives the hand to the quadrupeds and to man, 1 ' Sir Humphrey Davy goes st'll upward :— " There may be beings, near or surrounding us. ivhich we do not perceive, which we cannot imagine.

Written for the Spy and Columbian THE ALBUM'S ORIGIN. When Friendship' * court was held otiedaj 'Twan loiip ago, before tlie sway Of education taught mankind That pleasing art, from mind to mind, Which tells, by many a magic token, The tate of love or hate unspoken—Just as within the glowing West The sun was sinking to his rest, A silence, gloomy and profound. Reigned Tor a time o'er all around—The earthward eye and swelling heart Proclaimed, it was the hour to part. Majestic even In her tears The quern of that bright court appears—A look of love around she threw. And, ere she bade her court "adieu/* Summoned her herald, tn proclaim, At her behest, and in her naioe. That he fliould share herilirone and heart Who'd find a balm to heal the smart Of Friendship doomed to separation: With shouts of joyous acclamation, The arches c> the pajare rung—" Amen, Amen !" cried every tongue !

The Superintendent learning we were from Boston, Informed us that a prisoner was confined there, for passing counterfeit money, who hailed from Massachusetts. He had boon there some two or three years, and wo found him a very intelligent man. His cell was exceedingly cleanly, and upon the little table in the comer, we discovered several standard books, a bible, &c ^ which gave evidence of having been thoroughly read by the prisoner. He was said to be very in. dustrious, and certainly appeared comfortable, under the circa instances. His name was George — . He remarked that h...

Arithmetic. —Arithmetic >s a science as well as an ait; it'Is therefore possible for one well acquainted with the jtropertiea and relations of numbers when a'question is proposed for solution, says the Ohio School Journal, not only to 6e able after two or three trials, to obtain the result by soma arbitrary rule, but to sec readily if not at once, what operations arc required, and then to perform them in the shortest manner and to obtain the required result with the least possible number of figures. Hence it is well known to the observing that many of the processes required in the every day practico can bo greatly abbreviated. The contractions in multiplication are nsreerous and important, but most of them may be included in a (aw general classes, of which we name. 1. Those based upon the decimal relations of numbers.
