GREATEST DISCOVEHY OF. THE AGE.
Iessrs;j Blilton Sandfrsand John Starr

Nowailast their labors have ben followed with
success meeting their highest expectations. We
Kave had the pleasure of frequently witnessing
tteir "ritiiKfT formed na
chfnesrhaving for their objfet jhe production of
this wonderful ligbt. I estpruay we were invi
ted to attend the last one to Jbe made in the west.
It proved successful Thef e experiments1 have
been conducted with so much privacy, owing to
particular circumstance tjat our citizens havjB
as yet been as ignorant of the j inventor's pros
pects as the citizens of Boston. The apparatus
with which their light is majde is very,imall, so
as to allow of easy transportation. But it may
be increased to an indefinite extent, and with its
enlargement is the increase in size of the light.
From our own observations we should suppose
the power of the light could; not be increased.-
We never conceived of a liht more brilliant.
Though but the size of a pea, it is sufficient to
illuminate quite a large room, and forbids tne
steady glance of the eye. " fThe blaze of a can
dle twenty feet distant froni the apparatus, and
three feet from the wall, casts upon the wall a
thick shadow so much more brilliant 44 is the
light " though not one twentieth the candle's
flame. What will be the j power of this new
light when increased to thesize of gas light
We cannot conceive. At a distance the light
looks unlike other illuminations throwing out
most beautiful rays, which, finely colored spread
magnificently from the bright and glowing cen
tre. The inventors say they can make the light
of different colors, and e ven alternately change
from one color to another. The apparatus for
producing thia illumination displays great Inge.
nuity, and a thorough knowledge of that portion
of science which relates to the principles they
have so successfully applied, r j
While witnessing that portion of its operations
visible to the eye, we perceived a bar which was
tolerably heavy and nearly a foot long, and ! can
be made to revolve with swiftness sufficient to
fling itself in spite of allr workmanship to the
contrary, from its pivots. (It will go weeks with
undiminished velocity and without assistance,
once started, from man. This, we fancy, is an.
approach to the perpetual motion. Cannot it be
applied to locomotives, &e. t The inventors say
without doubt it can I Truly this is the age of
inventions. They say also, that this latter will
in many things supercede j steam -the light will
supercede many other artificial lights what
next ? Once started, the light may be said there
after to be of no expense.) 4The apparatus will
notcost a very great amount. It may bo kept
in one part of the city, and the light produced
by connecting wires in another part. Or may
be stowed away in the cellar or garret, as it is
not affected by dampness, and wires be carried
to different rooms and to the streets. What it
can do in the way of illumination, remains yet
to be discovered; and what it can do, we can
partially conceive. Thej inventors start imme
diately to Great Britain, o secure their patents.
This is truly one of the most wonderful inven
tions of the age -even of this age ; and we are
glad that Cincinnati has been the place of its

FISH WITHOUT EYES.
Not long since we noticed in one of the num.
bers of this paper, an article stating the fact that
Dr. Detmold of this city had some specimens of
fish taken from a " lake! in the celebrated
Mammoth Cave in Kentucky, which are said to
have no eyes. i
, We wish merely to remark; that we regret
that Dr. Detmold has neglected to apply his own
well known abilities to the solution of this curi
ous problem in nature, j 1 j
These fish have for some years excited much at
tention among the naturalists. The fact that they
have to all appearance no eyes, has called forth
from some, only exclamations 'at the wonderful
adaptation of everything for its position ; but in
others more skeptical it has fortunately for sci
ence) only excited the laudable desire which ev.
cry naturalist must feel to determine the ques
tion whether or not they are without eyes.
Wc shall content ourselves'at this time with
staling only a few facts with regard to these and
other equally surprising phenomena in this cave,
and defer a more minute exposition for some of
the scientific journals. - j i . - - ! ;, -
The "lake? in which these fish are found is
merely a collectjon of the Water which filters in
to theCave and settles in the lowest portion. It
is, in the rainy season, nearly 20 feet higher than
in the dry season of the yeir, and is called a riv:
erby those who live near and are accustomed
to visit the Cave. The Cave itself is only one
fourth of a mile from Green river. - j ;
V A number of these remarkable fish were ta
ken to Berlin, about a year and a half since, by
bur friend Dr. Theo. Teljcampf, now of this city,
but who has been residing, for some years in
Cincinnati, Ohio. , He visited this Cave and
caught the fish for ; the purpose. During his
l1!-1 dissected one of them, and
i8C0T?re(L1,i i?ptic nerve Subsequently the
e7 itself was found, covered by the skin; of the
can conceive only a general impression of Jight.
There are: fish, however, which have no eyes,
but these do not happen to be' in that category.
The peculiarity in the development ofheir
eyes, is by no means their ' only distinguishing
and remarkable feature, riThe total absence' of
light in the cave would render the use 'of even
perfect eyes impracticable!; consequently these
fish are provided with a protuberance from their
heads composed of Jolds of skin,' which are not
rigid, bat exceedingly flexible and filled with
nerves.; Their head is also covered with siml-
lar folds of skin. This apapratas is moved by
the slightest disturbance of the water ; thus it is
that they ars compensated by a remarkable de
velopment of their" sense of touch for the loss of
the sense of sight. V
' The white crawfish: have also, been found to
have eyes, but less developed than the fresh wa.
ter crawfish. ' - r - :; .r "I , - S-'VC 'f
V- Dr. Telkampf found specimens of beetles and
spiders Vithout eyes, duplicatespf which, be
deposited at Berlin; New specimens of animal

sThe New York Courrier des Etats Unit has
a correspondent in St. Domingo who gives oc
casiohally valuable information. In that paper
of Tuesday we find a letter dated 2d of March,
of which we translate the most important items.
!" : ' U.S. Gaz.
; You have learned by my previous letters
the publication of the decree relative to the land
titles, and the effect which it produced. This
decree, after having caused great excitement,
has been lately suspended. It is said that the
blacks of the south have addressed General
Guerrier, asking for the expulsion of the color
ed people from every branch of public service.
There seems to be a general impression that
there! will be serious contests. A conspiracy
has been discovered in St. Domingo, which had
for it? object the overthrow of the present Con.
stitutional Government, and the proclamation of
Santana as' perpetual dictator.
" On the 24th ultimo a court martial was held,
Colonel Juan Esteve presiding, which condemn
ed to death; at nine o'clock the next day, five per
sons, among those arrested on account ot the
conspiracy. j.In the evening the Vicar General
administered the sacraments to the condemned,
and the next day he, with an Italian priest ac
companied them to the cemetery, the place of
execution, where they were shot.
"The National Congress will assemble on
the 3d instant. It is composed of men sincere

IDLE YOUNG MEN.
It seems to be a source of regret to ma
ny of the good people of this country, that
; - !
so many wonny ana inaastrious young
meni are unafele to get employment, by
whiph they might earn an honest liveli
hood. The Mobile Herald states that
hundreds of industrious and respecable
young men are walking tbe- streets of that
city, seeking employment. Many of them
offer their services for a salary barely suf-
ncient to anord them a scanty subsistence.
This is:to be lamented, certainly; but to
us it seems easily accounted for-and in
our method of solving the problem, there
is something that removes much of the
poignancy of our regret for the destitute
condition of such young persons. The se5
cret is this ; these latter days, an invinci
ble repugnance is cherished to the mat
ter of working for a livelihood. This re
pugnance is re-cherished not only by
3'ourig men, but almost every parent thinks
bis son peculiarly adapted to some one of
the learned professions, or at least to the
business of a merchant. On this account,
the youth who could not reasonably be
expected to do otherwise, having only his
volition to consult, chooses, rather to shine
in the fine toggery of a merchant's clerk,
than to strip and do the drudgery of a me
If the hundreds of young men who
throng our southern cities in quest of em
ployment as clerks, hadmade of them
selves skilful mechanics, they could have
found employment at reasonable salaries,
Without difficulty, and thus saved them
selves the mortification, and the State the
expense of throwing them into penitentia
ries, and making botch mechanics of them
at last. But ah I it is not respectable to
M. Honor and shame from no condition rise !
Act well your part there all the honor lies.'
And why is it not respectable to work ?
why is there not as much honor in turning
out a skilfully executed mechanical job, as
there is in standing behind a counter,
measuring tape ? In the former, genius
and talent are indispensable the latter a
trained monkey could do as effectually as
the greatest genius in the land. The fact
is, there are matters in our social poilcy,
Which, to manage rightly, require long
heads, but which, in the present dislocated
state of society, are controlled by children.

; Missionary Intelligence. From thej
Missionary Herald, and other sources, we
learn that the American missions in Nes
toria still presents a discouraging aspect.
In Syria the Greek Church displays a per
secuting disposition, and seeks to quell the
spirit of inquiry which has been awakened
by the . missionaries Nevertheless prog."

mon, a band of hardy mountaineers, be

recently: vol unta rialy. signed a bond or
covenant to be faithful in the profession
of the Gospel, and to stand by each other
in the persecution ivhichawait-themN

"prospects are to some extent -clouded by
the present unsettled state t of afTairs.
This is more.pajrticularly thexase at Ho
nolulu,' where," the missionary says, f the
congregations are falling" ofF in numbers.
On another islandjsixty candidates for ad
mission to church membership were pro
posed at the date of last advices. . At a
nother station in charge of) Mr. Clark,! the
native converts were . about : to organize
for the support of their own minister and
Gospel institutions.- Mr. Armstrong, lrbm
another station, reports that the - people
had already raised one hundred and twen
tyifive dollars toward fiis support.
From the Indian missions ihe principal
intelligence relates to the triumphant
death of a daughter of the celebrated.Com
Clanter, of the Six Nations. The chief
imself lived and died in heathenism. He
was upwards of one hrfhdred and ten years
In India there is a prospect of a plenti
ful harvest from the labors of the devoted
missionaries sent out from this country,
and" Great Britian." "At -Armednugger,
Cherry and other stations,are many can
didates for baptism, and entire villages are
putting themselvesiinder the care of mis

Ox Bovs. The Fort Wayne, Indiana, Times and
Press has an excellent chapter on the boys of that town;
of which the annexed paragraph may not be altogether
inapplicable to boys and parents in most other towns :
" It does appear as though all parental restaint and
authority were removed from the youth of the present
day, at five or six years of age, and they were permitted
to run at loose ends from that time on. It is no uncom
mon thing in our streets, to hear boys, from eight to six
teen years of age, cursing and swearing oaths and im
precations that would choke a pirate. We know plenty
of such boys, and yet this community is raising money
and some of these very boys' parents contribute to the
fund to send the other side of the globe, to convert the
heathen ! Benevolent, indeed 1 Better to begin at our
