About one hundred and fifty years
ago an old man might have been seen
in his studyapparenlly amusing him
self by witnessing the escape of steam
from an old wine-bottle, and then
checking it instantaneously by plung
ing it into cold water. There are
multitudes, ho would sneer at an ob
server of nature who could stoop to
notice such a trifle yet this expansion
and condensation ot steam in the wine
bottle, and the train of thoughts which
it suggested, in the hands of the Mar
quis ot Worcester, gave birth to the
steam-engine the most valuable, pre
sent that Science has ever made to the
Arts. Those very men who are now
filled with delight and astonishment
when they bouold the beautiful steam
boat majestically ploughing the waves,
or the steam-car whirling its train of
carriages over the rail road with almost
the rapidity of thought, would be the
first to look and speak with contempt
of the train of causes tli it led to such
important results.
Hut perhaps the example of Newton,
more than any other,couclusivfly proves
that there id, in the whole circle of na
ture, nothing trifling to a truly great
mind. Thousands had seen apples fall
from the treegto the earth; yet no one
hail ever aked the question whether
the-catrseihar caumt the -apple: tn fall
to tlie earth, extended to the moonr -
yet this question, and its solution, was
the key which has unlocked the mech
anism ot the uii'verse, and given to
man power and ideas that could other
wise never have existed.
The great truth these examples in
culcate is this that (here is nothing
trifling in nature, nothing that is not
worthy attention and reflection, noihing
that does not form part of the great
chain of cause and effect, and capable,
consequently, of leading to the most
valuable and interesting events. There
is an impression abroad, that it forms
no part of the business of the tiller of
tne soil to think. This is not true;
and the position should be exploded at
once, it is scarcely possible Tor a

sun 01 money was aavancea, in order
to etlable hira to WosecuTeliislurahfe
ment. On reaching his. home, the
Deacon immediately, prepared a room
in his garret, and began to collect his
drove, exercising them every morning
under the crack and laah ot a long whip,
to regular marches round theToom. -
The plan operated favorably while
the number of cats were small, and the
space sufficient for - free movement
but when he had assembled a laree
number, opposition arose and when
the whip was applied to force obedi
ence, the whole mass, aa by common
consent and simultaneous movement,
pounced upon poor Deacon, and would
have torn him piece -meal, but lor the
timely aid of the family, who roused
by the noise, burst Ihe door of the
chamber, and allowed the cats to es
cape. .The Deacon fortunately sur
vived his wounds, returned the money

agency of his neighbor C, and relin
quished the contract.

Hundi eda of our youth who have
read Wirt's graphic life of Patrick Hen

to the powers of that self taught ora

the beet cause, and the storm scene in
the House of Burgesses of Virginia, on
ihe adoption of the Federal Constitu

who, by the lorce of eloquence, has
cleared the courts of justice and the
halls of legislation. And to back this
assertion, we here offer the simple
story of the eveuts connected with the
"Broken Bond," referred to at the
head of this article.
Just before the war of the Revolu
tion, Deacon Dudley C of New Hamp
shire, accompanied Zebina C. his
neighboring merchant, to the town of
Boston, lliere they called en Mr.
Frazier. a large importer of foreign
fabrics with1 whdm Mr Z, C, -waijn

thoughtful and enterprising, proposed
trade also, but the wary citizen-de
clined the purchase of his butternut
and hickorv Ditts. his ketrs of nickled
- . a i
tcouL and bales of . peltry but finally
expressed his wish to purchase a drove
of cats, for a ship, which he was about
to send to a quarter of the world
where the animal was unknown. Bu
said the crafty purchaser, they must be
trained to the whip, and to regular
marches across the country to ship
board, and then to a market in forgein
trade. The Deacon thought of the of
fer and concluded that aa horses,
mules, horned cattle, sheep, hog and
turkies had been trained and driven
by thousands across the country to a
markets he could ooj e why thereat
also might not be trained for the same
