eliisCemaleous. From the Yorkrille (S. C.) Conpiler. ELECTIONS. To elect a man to ollice, is to chocse him in preference to another. Election is the act of choosing or selecting one or more persons from a greater number for any of fice; in other words it is a voluntary pre. ference given to one, or more, among oth crs. Public election, is the ceremony of public choice. From the above dcfinition, it appears that in making an election the will is con cerned, therefore, there can be no election, unless the will of a man makes a choice. In the civil institutions of our country, a fundamental principle is that the people choose all their offices either inmmediaLely, by an act of their own; or mediately, by their representatives. So that no man can be empowed to rule over its in any sense, whom we do not choose; nor, laws cannot be enacted and enforced which we do not approve, it follows that tce the people go vern ourselves. This is an invaluable blessing, and can be richtly appreciated ...

Miscellaneous. From the Indiana Farmer. Thr eff ects of LIGn-r OR regetntioA are truly interesting to an crquirimg wind. It is generallv known that the healthy verdure of plaints is due to the influence of the solar rays; for every one must have observed the pale sickly appearance of grass which has been entirely secluded from light; and the whiteness, an'1 the bloated condition of vegal ables which have sprouted in dark cellars. Ligpht 1aciliates the decomposition of the ascending sap, in the leaves, causing the escape of oxygeni, and the deposit of carbon in the plant. Thus carbon is supposed to be the cause of-the green color of the leaves, and if it is not detached from the oxygen and aque ous parts of the sap, the plint will become pale anti dropsica.. Other things being the same, the verdure of vegetation is deepened in proporliotn to the quantity of light. But the solar beans have other re naekable effects upon plantis. - They con trol the stature of trees and herbs, render t...
