THE ERICSSON ENGINE. The following explanation of the principles of Capt. Ericsson's Atmospheric Engine, as given by himself, recently, will be read with interest: Mr. E. said the chief principle involved in the operation of this engine, wa that of using the same heat over and over again. This was effect ed in a very simple way, through the interven tion of what is called a "regenerator" between the valves and cylinder, which is nothing more or less than a mass of l-15th inch wire, compact ly interwoven, the whole containing 24 square feet Upon the heated air passing through this, the caloric is absorbed, and the cold air, in re turning, is again heated nearly enough to contin ue the motion of the engine. Seventy-five tons of air aro drawn through the 100,000,000 mesh es of the wire each hour.. The resistance to its passage is almost imperceptible. In its passage through the meshes the air is instantaneously heated to 400 degrees, as rapid as the electric flash. ; The wires aro not ...

Another New Planet. Mr. J. R. Hind an nounces th.it ho has made another discovery in the celestial regions. The discovery was made on the 15th ult, and the planet shines as a star of the tenth magnitude, with a pale blush light. If he U the first discoverer, Mr. ilLnd propones to call the plauet M Thalia." Little did Mr. Hind think, when 24 years ago ho waa watch ing the antics of a kitten around a trap in which a mouse had been caught at his father's house at Nottingham, that so great a reputation was to be gained by him as an Astronomer.

.:' THE DYING BOY. Mother 'mother, I've been thinking All my youthful visions o er, And regret that I can never Know those happy moments more. All the past comes up before me, Like a joyous golden dream; And, with tho'ts and deeds of childhood, Make my moments brighter seem. O, how fondly I remember, When I strayed with blue-eyed Nell, 'Mong tho flowers, all wet with dew-drops, Down in yonder silent dell. There wo heard the streamlet's murmur, Mingle with the 6ong of birds, While our voices 6wectly blended, As we uttered low-tuned words.

FRANCE. Burning of an Emigrant Ship- Loss cfjifly onc Lhe$i The Orlando, Capt. White arrived at Havre on Monday, with a number of passen gers belonging to the American ship St. George, Capt. Bairson, which had been destroyed by tire at sea. The St. George, it appears, left Liver pool for New York on the 24th' of November, with 127 passengers and 25 crew, the former chiefly Irish, and among thera many women and children. The voyage was favorable enough up to the 24th of December, when in 46 deg. 12 min. latitude, and 25 deg. 30 min. longitude, the hold of the ship was discovered to be on fire. The Captain caused one of the hatchways to be opened, and set the fire engine to play. But the smoke was so thick between decks that the pas songers were obliged to leave. The flames spread to the part of the vessel between the main and mizen masts, and were accompanied by such thick smoke that seven or eight persons were suffocated. It was now found that it was impossible to check the progress...

V hitherto unknown in the country. Tho un healthy prosperity of a period of speculation, will be followed most certainly by n period of embarrassment, bankruptcy and the want of em ployment among the working classes. Man, like nil Leasts of prey, is fierce when famished. A hungry Frenchman has something in him of the nature of tho wolves which in a severe winter descend from the mountains of his own country and attack the peasants at their doors. It was tho want of employment, it was idleness and famine which gave riso to several attempts at revolution that so soon followed the revolution of 1843. . Dates from New Orleans to the 26th ult., state that at midnight on Tuesday tho steamer Ed ward Howard, bound for Nashville, came in col. lission, near -Bonnet Carets Church, with the Swallow, from Cincinnati.

FAIR MOUNT. Of the public works of Philadelphia, there are none of which its inhabitants are more justly proud, than those at Fair Mount', by which the city is supplied with water of the best quality and in the greatest plenty. Fair Mount is in the rear of the city, upon the bunk of the Schuylkill, the neighborhood of which affords some romantic scenery. The reservoirs are sit uated on the top of a hill rising from the river, a part of it perpendicular rock, to the height of one hundred feet The ascent from the river to the reservoirs,,is by a flight of substantial wooden steps, with resting places, over one of which is a temple. The reservoirs, which are surrounded with paling, outside of which U a gravel walk, contain upwards of 12 millions of gallons, supplying the city through between fir teen and twenty miles of pipes. The water was formerly forced to the reservoirs by steam, which is no longer used ; it is now raised by machinery propelled by the Schuylkill. The machinery is s...

The activity in the Forest Mining Compnny is occasioned by the setting off of a new mine, 44 the Glen," from the property of the Forest. Each stockholder in the latter is to re ceive as a dividend one-half as many shares in the Glen as ho now holds in the Forrest, while a sufficient number of shares is to be retained by the directors to procure an active capital, ad equate to fully proving the mine, without fur ther assessment.

HEART WEALTH. 'Tis not in books of learned lore, Tis not in gold's uncounted store, Nor yet in pleasure's giddy round, That heart-wealth may be sought and found 'Tis not in Fame's o'crtopping height, For heart-flowers droop in glory's light, Though watered by the crimson sweat That trickles from the bayonet ! But ah ! 'tis in the priceless thought That one true heart, with love unbought, Finds melody in every tone, And lives for thee and thee alono ! My verdict this, in calmest mood, Of what comprises earthly good God's love except though, all too sure, In heart-wealth I must still bo roor. THE HONEST SAILOR. Translated from the French. A Turkish merchant had lost his purse, which contained two hundred pieces of gold. He ap plied to the public crier, whom ho ordered to declare that he would givo half of the sum to tho one who had found it. It had fallen into tho hands of a sailor, who preferred to make lawful gain, by confining himself to the propos ed reward than to make himself gu...

THE PACIFIC RAIL ROAD. Tbo speculations of our Washington corres pondcnt in hU letter to-day, respecting the bill for the construction of a great railway commu nication between the Mississippi and tho Pacif ic, naturally induco somo reflections upon a sub ject of so much interest to the American peo ple. No proposition within the past ten years, has to our knowledge, been received with such gen eral favor as this, and none, as we conceive, con tains within itself so many elements of utility. Indeed, it may almost be said, that the people of tho Union are unanimously in favor of the measure in some shape, and will be deeply dis appointed at the possible failure to carry out their wishes in its behalf at tho present Con gressional session. The means for its accomplishment are cer tainly ample, in the boundless public domain which stretches away from tho valley of the Mississippi to the Rocky Mountains, and be yond, even to the shores of the Pacific, and it needs therefore only to devi...

Cool. The Louisville Courier gives the fol lowing account of acool transaction, which took place in that city nt the burning of the Louis vilie Hotel, ft few days since. One of the boarders, carpet bag in hand, descended from the third story, which was all in flame, and marching up to the clerk at the office, around whom the hot cinders were dropping, told htm that he believed he would move hi quarter, and wanted to know how much his bill was. Tho clerk turned to his ledger, counted it up, made out the bill, took the money, and politely bowed him out, nt the same time expressing his regret at his sudden departure. Col. Fremont's claim to an immense tract of land in California, known a. the Mariposa claim, .has been confirmed bv the tl. S. Commissioner. This probably make Col.

Old familiar objects, fraught with tenderest associations, have been removed, to make way for the upholsterer's choicest fan cies. There was no picture left upon tho wall with sweet, sad, mournful eyes, to follow him with silent reproach. Everything was fresh and delightful as the new-born joy that filled his heart. .

FOREIGN NEWS. England. -The non-arrival of any large pro portion of the vessels known to be on their way with gold from Australia, causes disappointment in London. Nearly a million and a half sterling was at ca previous to last accounts from Sing apore, and it is probable the Great Britain and Sydney steamers are now within four or five weeks of their return with an equal amount. At tho same time the exportation of goods has been going on to an unprecedented extent, and is in creasing, so that Australia is at present debtor to shipments from England, say 3,000,000 sterling. t Some specimens of Canadian gold from the St. Joseph district, on the Chnudiere river, have been tested by Thomas, Abell, & Co., and are worth 3 grains worse than standard, with 28 pwts. of silver per lb. The great mortality on board emigrant ships to Australia Is attracting public notice. Lord Shaftesbury, tho recognized head of tho nnti-slavery movement in England, writes from Genoa, somo comments on the 4...

LUMBER PROSPECTS AT SAGINAW. The mildness of the winter, thus far, has ro ' Halted unfavorably to the lumbering interest of this part of the State, for at least the coming season nnd, from . present appearances, the amount of lumber in the log, that will be got out for the next 'season's operation, will fall short of the last year's stock nearly one third. But this dampening prospect to our manufac Hirers has been greatly counteracted by the news derived from the other parts of the lumbering country as regards the probable amount of lum ber to be exported the coming Reason, to the different markets. By reliable information, we have been able to come to the' conclusion that tho exports from Northern Michigan for 1853, will, in the aggregate, be nearly tho same as the past year, and from tho prospect of a large in creased demand, the upper grades 'of lumber will bo greatly enhanced in value in the East ern, and more particularly, in the Western mar kets.
