CJje Rational a$tttt PIIlLADKLPHIAl W ED N KS OA Y, SKl'TKMHKHS. ISrO Upon our first page if an extract from a London journal noticing a new work on Meteorology, to which we allude in order to indicate the respectful ana proper a tcntfon which the pioneers of this noble and useful science receive in intelligen hneliali pnnVj. and wontrast it with Hi very hurricane of ridicule sent through the ptcss trains t Mr. Espy for the dis covcries which he has made in the same walk of knowledge. Each age, how ever, reproduces the errors of its precur sors, and we must ever expect fully and ignorance to discredit and decry what i cannot understand. 1 rue science must advanca in ppite of the attacks it receives For the interest of a great number o creditors of John Nicholson, especially in this city, who may not have heard of the appointment by the Governor of Pennsyl vania of a commissioner to ascertain the amount of tho outstanding claims (otlic than lhofoof the State), we are induced to state that the 1st of October next is the U"V limited for the presentation of thei claims to Joseph B. Anthony, Esq at liar i isburg, whose duty it is made to report to the Governor on or belore the 1st o November, what are the claims of crcd tors on the estate of John Nicholson, their amount, whether secured by bonds, mort gages, judgments, or otherwise; and that the said commissioner append to his report any documents or communications that may be exhibited or made to him by any person claiming to be or to represent such creditors. The proceedings in the Harrisburg Riot Case were, during the progress of them, reported by a corresponueiit 01 in Gazette. The Pennsylvania!!, in a para graph prefatory to the publication ol Judge Porter's Opinion, denied the accu racy ot our correspondent s statements, and attributed the letters to Win, B. Heed, the late Attorney General, and one of the counsel in the case. It happened yesterday that The United States Gazette having borrowed the Opinion in type trom the Pcnnsylvanian, inadvertently used also the paragraph alluded to. The editor of the former paper makes, this morning, the following prompt explanation of the mistake, which we felt assured he would do, in justice to ourselves, to Mr. Reed, and to his political friends generally. . " CoRRECTioir. In adopting the material of Judge Porter s opinion on tne iciot case, trom a neighboring Van Buren paper, our peojfle too'c also the opmwns ot the Van Huren editor, touching the Authorship of certain letters. We certainly should not have used the language had we thought that Mr. Kecd wrote tne epistles, which, by the way, he did not; and the other reflections would scarcely become our politica1 connexion with the late Administration, and still Jess would they comport with our personal rela-' tipnswith, and high respect for Mr. Heed. milled in this State, is given in several papers. As the guilty party has fled be yond the reach of the law, it appears to us that no good end can be attained by mentioning the nature of his offence. As the Spartan code took no cognizance of parricide, the lawgiver regarding it as a crime too monstrous for probable commission, we may in the same spirit omit a definitive notice of certain acts, the mere idea of which gives an inexpressible shock to a modest mind. That, from which hu man nature instinctively shrinks, should not, except for the necessary purposes of justice, be held up to the common view. We sincerely trust that this suggestion will not be lost upon certain journalists, who are too often indifferent in matters of this kind. At a State Convention of the Whig party held in Harrodsburg, Kentucky, on the 26th ult , (pur hundred and fifty delegates being present, Robert P. Letcher was nominated as candidate for Governor, and Manlius V. Thomson for Lieutenant Governor. Governor dark of the same State is just deceased. He died at Frankfort, Ky., on the 27th ult. In the two last paragraphs of the third section of the City Ordinance regulating the elec tion ana appointment oi certain cuy orncers, published yesterday, the word ' manager was used instead of 1 messenger. The Uev. oeorge w. ucmune, D.1J , was on Monday elected a Trustee of the University of Pennsylvania, in the place of Edward S. Burd, Esq., resigned. On Tuesday the Court set aside the proceedings in the case of the County Treasurer, and ordered the immediate issue of a venire facias for the empanneling of twenty-four new jurors to serve for the present term! in order that this cause may be proceeded in. A man named Henry Sennet, attached to a canal boat, was drowned in the Schuylki'.l on Monday night. The locomotive on the Columbia rail road on Saturday last when near Oakland was upset by a rail mischievously placed upon the track. 1 he engineer escaped with but slight injury. The sickness at Augusta, Georgia, continues without any abatement, and the inhabitants are leaving the city by hundreds. One lettwr says none have recovered that have been taken, and many die ii! from three to five days. The resident physicians do, not acknowledge it to be. ihe yellow fever, but a physician who has praptised at New Orleans, pronounces it to be that disease. It is principally confined to the lower part of the town. A man and his wife, named Bollinger, were instantly killed by lightning on the 24th ult., while in their house on Plum creek, near Pittsburgh. Five children in the same room were uninjured, nor was any damage done to the building. The wife of Mr. Van Boskcrck, of New York, died on Friday last from the burns received by the explosion of a spVit gas lamp. This is the second death that has occurred lately in that city by accident in using this gas. One hundred thousand dollars New York and Erie rail road stock, bearing 4$ percent, interest was sold by auction at New York on Saturday to difTererent purchasers, at prices ranging from 79 down to 77j. A fracat recently occurred at Cincinnati W twecn aome members of the Ucrman Kifle company, who had paraded for the purpose of firing at a target, and quarrelled as To tho closeness o their BhoU. A pretty general ehgagemen of the company was the result, in which one man was stmt through the car, icveral knocked down with the but end of rifles, and others sc vcrcly cut with sabres, nrick-bals and club were also used in the melee. It is stated that in every county of North Carolina where there was a Whig majority at the recent election, the law for the establish ment of common schools was nobly sustained The Essex Bank, at Guildhall, Vermont, hai been sued, and its safe attached, by the person who obtained its charter. The deposits were removed, it is said, in tolo, and the following is their amount, as appears recorded on the back of the writ by the Sheriff: 14 sticks of sealing wax. 19 dollar 41 cents in specie, and two or three old blank books. The amount of capital employed by the ma nufacturing companies at Lowell, has bcei erroneously stated at but nine hundred thousand; nine millions is the correct sum. The amount of donations and legacies to th American Hoard of Commissioners for Foreign Missions during the last year is staled at 241,888 do 11 iii-s and 08 cents. Eight Indians ran a footfrace some time since at La prairie, Lower Canada. One of them went over a mile and sixty yards in five minutes and two seconds. Governor Ckrke of Kentucky died on the 27th ult , at the seat ot government, after gering illness, which had disabled him from at tending to his official duties for two or three months before his decease. The duties of the Executive for the remainder of the term, more than a year, now devolves upon Lieut. Governor Charles Wicklifte. The packet ship ltepublx, arrived at New York, reports having seen the British Queen on the 10th ult. in lat 49 10, long 36 20; the same vessel also saw the steam ship Liverpool in lat 41 30, long 60. Forr new cases of yellow fever occurred at Mobile on the 23d ult. Our readers will remember the donation of a thousand dollars Contributed by the citizens of St. John, N. B., on the occasion of the fire at Eastport, Maine. There was so little indm dual distress, however, that only one hundred dollars had been expended when the citizens of East port received intelligence of the confla gration at St. John. 1 he amount expended was immediately subscribed and the whole sum returned with many thanks to the original do nors, and was gratefully accepted by the suffer ers at St. John. Clarissa Ware, a widow aged 47, committed suicide at Boston on Sunday night last by hang. ng he self. On Tuesday morning a man named Patrick MGuirc, was run over by the locomotive on the Newark rail road, and both of his legs severed from his body. S. S.

Selioouer La AmUtad. - The mutineers of the Amistad arrived at New Haven on Saturday afternoon, and about 5 o'clock on Sunday morning were lodged in the County Jail, to await their trial before the United States Circuit Court, to be holdcn at Hartford on the 17th inst. As the mutiny, pi-racy, murder, or whatever it may be called, took place six or seven leagues from land, and of course was committed upon the high seas, this, we take it, removes ait doubt as to the competency of a U. S. Court to adjudicate upon the case. The number of prisoners is 39. Ten of the slaves died during the passage. The Amistead is discharging at New London, where both the vessel and cargo will be sold, for the benefit of whom it may concern. The U. S. Revenue Cutter Jackson, Capt. N. Bicker, returned to New York, on Tuesday morning, from a cruise in search of the slave pirate. The cutter was in the late frules. and sustained considerable damage loss of star- oaru quarter boat; tower booms, port shutters, and obliged to heave overboard the lee guns. Capt. Bicker states that in forty five years he has not experienced such a severe gale. FORGKUV. Robert S. Hassard, a young man, for some time past a clerk in the house ot Messrs. Dixus flc Smith, merchants on the Levee, in this city, left this place on Sunday evening or Monday morning last, under the following circumstancrs, as they have been stated to us. On Saturday last, Hussard forged a check for one thousand dollars, on the Bank of Missouri, made payable on the Monday following, and got it cashed at the exchange office of J. F. Kranciscus on Main street. On Monday the check was presented at the bank and the money received. On Tuesday Messrs. Dixon 8c Smith were in formed by the bank that their funds were overdrawn, $300. Astonished at this they repaired to the bank and were s'iowd tl :s check, which was the first discovery of the forgery. In the meantime, I'assard had made preparations for 1 avingand leli without even consulting his wife. Hassard was formerly from the State of New York, has been in this city about four years has 'ived pretty extensively," and very much at his ease. He has been discharged once or twice from employment, and was discharged from the house of Dixon h Smith on the very day he made the forgery. He was married but a short time since, and has left his wife ignorant of his intentions. St. Louts Hepub'.ican The Paris Savings Uanlta.

Kd i tori I wa pleased to see in yottt last extract from Judge Hall's notes on the Western States, giving credit to whom credit is due. Fulton, no duubt, deiervci credit for his improvement on atcamboati, but the credit of the invention is unquestionably due tu John Fitch. 1 wis personally Acquainted with him at the time he invented the steam boat. He lived in the county, within siphi of my father's residence, ntar the line dividing Uucka anil Montgomery counties. I iaw h-m almost daily. Judge Hall ism's'aken in saying 'hat the idea of wheels had not occurred to Mr. Kitchi but instead of them oars were used I saw Irs first boat on the Delaware, that indeed was worked with oars But he aclutlly showed me a draft or inudel of wheels, and employed me (who was a lad at that time,) to cut out ol wood, smalt water wheel, as models by which to have large wheels made to propel his boat. But why he never applied them to his bout, 1 Know not t probably it was for want ol pecuniary ab liiy to get them. He wss in embarrass ed circumstances his scheme was considered by mint people as visionary, and he could not ubtsin any person of capital to aid him. He no duubt was a very ingenious mechanic. He wan not only a watchmaker, but a silver smith; he matte silver sp onn, buckles and shirt buttons i or sale, also brass small toothed comb, and crooked combs fur ladies to put up their hair. All the proseeds fur his wok he devoted to nib favorite scheme of steam navigation. He also learned the art of surveying while he lived in my neighborhood and took a trip to Ken lucky- made many actual surveys there, and when he return' d made a map of Kentncky, engraved the plate himself, and s ruck oft' a number of coi.-ies by the use of mach nerv ot his own construction told those maps about the country, and appropriated the proceeds to his favorite scheme. One of his maps I still have in my possession. I have also part of his surveyor's staft in my possession. 1 It's fact above stated are within my own personal knowledge. N. H. BOILKAU.

DlittULhaikce on tlie ( aiialSevernl Lives A letter to tho editor of the National Inlet igencer, dated Clear Tpring, August 31st furnishes the following particulars; A eentleman has mst arrived from the line of the Canal in Alleghany county, in whose tatement tne utmost reliance can be placed. who informs me that the troops who marched from this county to suppress the riotous and lawless conduct of the laborers on the line of Canal have adopted very decisive measures with all who manifested the slightest resistance to heir authority. Some twenty or upwards of the ringleaders have been made prisoners; some eight or ten have been shot and foverely wound ed one, at least, of whom is not expected to recover. A few who made their escape across he Potomac were fired upon by the riflemen trom Cumberland whilst clamberme the bluli on the opposite side of the river, and some of them were seen to tall; but to what ex'.ent they were mured my informant couia not say, as no one luu come over to report when he left, several shantees were burnt down, and others tore down, by the troops, whose owners had refused admittance when demanded i and all the firearms fonnd in the possession of the Canal hands were seized and destroyed on the snot. When my informant left, the troops were still progressing up the line, and had reached withir tew miles ol Oldtown theur whole force amounting to about 150 men. lo those living at a distance this may be nought narsn anu unnecessarily severe trea ment, hut it is universally admitted in this sec- ton, and by the citizens Jiving all alone: the woik, to be no worse than the exigences of the rues require. Some of the most lawless and eh handed acts of violence have doubtless been committed by these creatures, and that, too, upon innocent and unonenumcr citizens nd others engaged on and about the works. it is satd that about $7000 worth ot h re -arras arrived at Oldtown the other day, having been purchased in lialtimore and sent to one ot the aities on the Canal, and by mere accident -vere discovered in time to prevent those from getting hold of them for whom they were intended. If any other additional news arrives between lis and to-morrow noon, I muy write you strain by the next mail." , From Mexloo The New Orleans Courier derives from Mexican papers to the 3rd August eonie items which bare not befure been noticed. It appears that shordy after Bustamente re turned to the capital, he made a clear sweep of he old cabinet turning out the bitter enemy f the united States, Mr. liorostiza, and also the other ministers who were the creatures and Hies of Santa Anna. These papers give some curious statements as to the Mexican army. It appears there are only 12,000 regulars under arms, and yet the war department expends or runs in debt for bout thirteen milams of dollars annually. The greatest conlustuu prevails throughout some battalions have more officers than toldicra, and nearly all are badly armed ai d equipped 1 be civil aft airs ot Mexico arc said to be in a condition equally unfavorable; In the Northern provinces the armed bands of the two parties have not hesiUled to levy contributions on the peaceable inhabitants, and trade has suffered greatly from the insecurity of the roads. In the south, a wholo Stte is undergo-ing the rigors of famine. Those who have read Humboldt's travels, will recollect the glowing description he gives of Oaxaca the Icnihty of its ail, the mildness of its climate, and the number of its towns snd hamlets. It now appears that a long drought has parched up the fir Ids from which the inhabitants drew (heir supplies of grain, and the cattle have per- shed in great number. -lllf a million of inhabitants are now exposed to die of hunger. t he road have been so neglected, and are become so insecure, that the mens of bringing supplies from other places do not exist. , THK MILK CII.TVHK, Orcttt Silk Meeting, at Wghjitlil Cocoonery, ('Ttnan(ownt Agreeably to a resolution passed at the last stated meeting of the Philadelphia County Silk fSocifly, a npirtttl meeting of the society, convened at llighlicld Cocoonery, Germantown, on Thursday, 2 2d August, to which the friends of the Silk, limine and the public generally, were invited. About live hundred of the most respectable citiffens of the city and county of Phi-: ladelphin, and adjoining counties, besides from several of the states, were in attend unco, who I evinced, by their close, undivided attention to the many interesting and important facts eltl cited on the occasion, the deep interest they j felt in the subject which drew them together, j The committee appointed at the preceding meeting of the .Society, to c dlect facts connected with the silk business, and report the same at each meeting of the society, made their report through their chairman, Mr. Pierce, which being read and open lo discussion, the whole subject was taken up, snd much valuable information elicited from the remarks of the different gentlemen who addressed the society. Mr. Physick, stated, among other things, the complete success which had attended his efforts to produce superior silk from the leaf of the Morus Multtcaulis tree. And in order forever to put to rest the doubt and fear expressed of the adaptation of this tree to the silk culture, he read several certificates from the principal tailors in Philadelphia, expressive of their opinion, on a trial, of the character of sewing silk, produced by worms fed on the leaf of this tree, in his cocoonery. He exhibited, at the same time, specimens of the sil,k, and also specimens of the very fast Italian, from the white mulberry, and the superiority of our own, in every essential particular, was evident to the most casual observer. These certificates will be found annexed, together with his letter to Mathew Carey, Esq. to the truth of the statements of which Mr. P. called the particular attention of the meeting, in a short but em-phat c address, earnestly soliciting the members of the society or any others present, to state all the experience they had of a contrary kind, as his on'y object was to get at the truth and nothing but the truth. 1 here was however, not one dissenting voice. Mr. Leeds, of Philadelphia, spoke of the elTorts of speculators, who were strenuously exerting themselves to decry the Morus Mult i-ca tilis, and the silk business generally, in order to escape the inevitable ruin which would certainly overtake them, in the event of not succeeding in their efforts, from the imprudent contracts entered into by them early in the spring, to furnish immense quantities of trees at 12 1 cents each, while they were now unable to fill except at an advance of at least from 100 to 150 per cent. Mr. L.. also stated his wish to purchase, for immediate use, ten or fifteen bushels of cocoons from worms fed exclusively on the Morus Multicaulis, to continue the daily exhibition of Mr. Hrouks patent silk machine, at his establishment, No, 2 Franklin Place. lie justly contended that nothing would carry conviction to the public mind, with the same force, as these exhibitions. People wanted to set for themselves -and seeing would be believing. He also announced that he was ready to purchaser "t a liberal price, for cash, from one to ten thousand bushels of cocoons. Mr. Pierce, of Mount Airy, who has been engaged in the silk business for the last eight years, on the white mulberry, remarked, that although he had hitherto doubts, strong doubts of the adaptation of the Morus Multicaulis tree to the production of silk, yet he was now convinced, from experience, that this was the food for the silk worm, and so firmly was he of this opinion, that he designed the ensuing spring to plant one hundred acres with the Morus Multicaulis, to go into the cultivation of s'dk on an extensive scale, and was now making prepara tions 10 manuiucture siiK cloths lor his umbrella establishment in Philadelphia. Mr. P. also imparted some very valuable informatioi relative to his mode of preserving the egg until the time of hatching, which was this: the eggs were removed to a cool cellar as soon as they had their natural color, after being laid; when the cold weather came on, they were placed in a room without fire, and kept there through the winter; they were then rolled up and put into a confectioner's show bottle, corked up, and Ilmz-nrlr Iwino- cticrKflv B,.nlr kl..r la , the bottle, the cavity was filled up with melted j rosin, &c, entirely excluding the air. Thei bottle was then put into a small keg, filled round with shavings, and after being headed up, was piaccu m me ice-nouse until wanted Mr. P. said that scarcely an egg failed in hatching, and healthier worms he had seen nowhere Mr. Ellis, of New Jersey, remarked, that too much care could not be observed in the purchase of eggs, he having been most wofullv tie ceived in the supply which he had bought for himself. Out of thirty ounces, scarcely any hatched; and as they were all or principally New England eggs, he had come to the conclusion that the Yankees did not make good Eggs, There has, no doubt, been many similar failures, but, said Air. r,., as there will be a laro-e supply the market of this year's produce, there' will be no difficulty, if the eggs be purchased from the producers, ot obtaining healthy ones. Mr. E. also stated that he had built a cocoonerv this summer, 25 by 60 feet, calculated to feed three millions ot worms, tor twelve hundred dollars and if the principle of economy observed in the construction ot this building, were applied to those of smaller dimensions adapted to small cul tivators, the expense of erecting a cocoonery wuum ue very irinini', aim every Farmer in me community could tro into the business without diverting any hazardous amount oi money from inetr ordinaay occupation. I he meetinfr was also very appropriately and sensibly addressed by Messrs. Kinsman and uuckley ot Philadelphia, and Mr. Comfort of Hy berry. After which, the Keport was adonted. and ordered, with the accompanying certificates, to be published. Mr. Gay, the inventor ol the celebrated silk reeling and spinning machine, was present with his apparatus, which was put in operation by sieam, 10 me cieiigni ana gran neat ion ot the hundreds in attendance. Mr. Gay's machine converts the fibre from the cocoon, into scwiutr s'dk, by a single operation, and is a splendid specimen of American ingenuity. KEPORT. The committee to whom was referred the in quiries suggested at the last meeting in relation to facts in regard to the production ot silk from the Morus Multicaulis, beg leave to report,That they have carefully inquired into the subject, and find that a large number ot silkworms of the various kinds, have been fed during the present season by members of the society and others in this county, and in most instances with entire success. In the cocoonery of Mr. Philip Physick, at Germantown, large numbers have been fed during the present season, and there are now about twelve hundred thousand being fed in this establishment solely upon the leaf of the morus multicaulis. The worms are and have been remarkably healthy. Thei1 are of aH aires. some twelve days old and others spinning. The cocoons now on the shelves are large and fine, and it is the opinion of the committed that they have never seen bettor produced from the while mulberry. We were a mo shown some hanks of raw silk reeled in this establishment, from cocoons the produce of multicaulis feeding, which were remarkable for lustre and strength, and were thought upon comparison.supcrior to other hanks also reeled her, which were produced from worms fed upon the white mulberry. Sew- tr silk was al-o pro lucctl from the multicaulis. and it is the ( pinion of the committee, that they have never seen Italian or ri-ench sewings which were superior. When it is remembered that the silk exhibit ed to the committee was produced from foliage taken from trees which were planted this spring and but about three months old, from the bud, ami therefore mere suckers, they cannot withhold an expression of surprise that the feeders have been so successful, and that silk of such a remarkable bt:uty and strength should be the result. It is proper to add, that although between one and two millions of worms have been fed and are now feeding from Mr. Physick 's trees, yet such is the capacity of the morus multicaulis for the reproduction of its foliagc, that the eye can scarcely observe that the tree have been defoliated. 'I hey therefore confidently recommend the morus multicanlis as a food for silk worms, and are of opinion that the producing of silk by its means, may be justly regarded as a moat lucru five brunch of agricultural industry nnd widl worthy the serious attention of the Pennsylvania Parmer. The annexed certificates are in reference to the above mentioned sewing silk. K. HPt-NCKIt, Vs. J. pikui;k, DAVID COMPOItT, . K KNDKIt TON S.M'Tff, HAHMON OSI.KH. Philadelphia, Aug. 22, 183".

To Matiikw Caiir?, Esq., My Dear Sir The elevated position you hold as a philanthropist, induces the writer to address this letter to you, and frankly with a view to its ultimate publication should its matter be i deemed by you of sufficient importance to ar-' rest for a brief space the attention of the very intelligent public of the United States. Deli-j cacy only and great indisposition to come personally before its eye, has heretofore deterred your correspondent fromcommiuiicat ing through , the public papers, anything relative to the present subject but inasmuch as the little ! good he hopes has been accomplished, partly i by his means, is in danger of annihilation in , COllSet lie I1CCS Ot lllS former ITlOtlVCS, 311(J tlltUI'C ph",s be!n, misrepresented or not unde stood; u,thcr1 which, it is feared by many, may have a tendency to retard the great object he lias been endeavoring to support with his feeble aid, he begs leave without farther preamble to commence at once the subject of this letter though previously he would tender an apology for any appearance of egotism it may assume, as he will probably find it more convenient to use the first than the third person in the subsequent part. It has been stated that the reason why there are so many very poor persons in the United Slates, is, that a great number ol its citizens are too proud to work, and to dure less to lay up for themselves something for future dependence; but is this charge just? have you not always found our indigent people both willing and able 10 moor whenever woi k suited to their condition, or education, or feelings, has been proffer ed them? Why then should they be censured before they have been patiently heard and rightly judged ? The class particularly referred to, are those who, pot born to affiucnt circum stances, are continually told that they ought to go out to service. Do those who tell them so, reflect that they are speaking to free bon Americans, within whose bosoms beat hearts as aspiring as their own, and equally as impatient ot allowing any human creature to lord it over them, and who prefer suffering and want to the humiliating reflection that they have ever had a master but their God.' You will no doubt admit that there are many poor of this description in our happy land to wnom that labor would be a boon indeed, that could maintain them without concomitant morti hcation. What species oi labor, 1 pray you, noms form this desideratum in such bold lief as the silk business in all its branches? at which men and women, boys and guis, young nu old, the crippled and infirm, high and low, may be actively and profitably employed without causing a blush to mantle on the cheek of any. Every man, or a least every man who has the proper feelings of a man, must have a wish to perform some good in his generation, or in other words, not to nave been only ' natus consu-mere fruges. Actuated by a feeling of this kind, I have been engaged m endeavoring to promote the culture ot suk; nor do l wish you to infer that there has been no desire in my breast lo augment my own resources at the same time; but should loss only be my portion, still I shall be amply repaid if I have contribu ted one mite toward the permanent establish merit of the culture of silk in my native land. High field Cocoonery has not cost as much as many suppose; but yet as the expense has been considerable,! propose to reimburse myself from the public sale of part only of my Morus Multi caulis, intending to propagate from the remain der, enough to plant ou acres ot land lor the purpose ot leedingsilkworms extensively hereafter. Perhaps it would be proper for me in this place to contradict the statement ot persons unknown, that 60,000 worms fed on Morus Mul ticaulis perished in one day at my est bliuhment Why, sir, we have not lost the twelfth part of that number 'during the whole summer; but ii ii were inie, aim n wouiu not oe as many Dy thousands as r 11 silk Growers expect lo lose out of so large a number as we have fed this summer, (2,000,000). M. Camille Beauvaisj an eminent authority upon the culture of silk, as serts that the French usu.-My lose SO per. cent. of their whole crop. I think therefore I am warranted in saying, that the experiment of laborating silkworms from Morus Multicaulis, at Highficld Cocoonery, has been crowned with complete success or at least with success greater than usually falls to the lot . of feeders upon the white I Fa!i an Mulberry in France, itself, a nation having the experience of centuries in this a; t - of centuries, I say, for it is well known that the first mulberry tr. e wos introduced thcie during the time of the Crusades, by Giupafe, of St. Aubon, and planted three leagues from Mont Mcliartj and it is a matter of history thati Charles the Seventh wore at his entrance into Houeii in H P, a beaver lined with velvet, the most costly and elegant head ornament known at thai nine. (1;iV e3lf flre inf()rmed that a car will leave the Certain it is, that msny specula or in M tus (ai r0U(1 Jepul nt Cnmden, at 9 o'clock, prc-Multicauli. without owning or rearing s mi i ary -i.i,, nil 4il, mnriiiiiir o" sale, and return imme- trae themselves, actually luld llioutandi ot ihem ai very iow prices ia3i spnngi viiiwmcnuy ex pect ng to buy them at lower prices mil, nng before the time for delivering them in the fall; but ss the silk busincs is now fully ce ruined to be no humbug, hut rather a substantial reality, and the value of the tree having consequently risen Instead of fallen, it becomes a nia'-ter of great pecuniary importance to them to put the fdl prices clown, ay, snd keep them down toot and as one means of effecting this object, 1 sm UJ'd thry have circulated a report lar and wide, that I purpose selling oil my whole stock) that having tried the experiment fully I have found it would not do, have become tired of nnd abandoned it. But, sir what is the tru-hf why, so far from being tirtd uf snd abandoning it, I feel gratified beyond measure st having commenced it, nor could I possibly point out any other occupation so likely to please the generality of mankkd as this the whole process from hatching the eggs to manufacturing the nav costly brocadts, being replete idi interest in all its s'sges ay and with profit iooi for, from the experience cf this summer, I feel perfectly certain we can raise, upon a very modera'e calculation, from the 100,000 Mulliciuhs trees I propose to reserve for my own use out ol 400,000 I have now growing, to plant my whole farm of 60 seres very thxkly with them next year not to sell, hut to supply my Cocoonery with foliage for 15,000,000 ot worms, intended to be raised the year after next. My lai.d is by no means in a high state of cultivation, vet I feel certain that the above num ber of worms can be fed from i's produce when I the trees are two ycais old, i;d an 100,000 pro ' duce 'SSS lbs. of raw silk, so will 15,000,000 produce 6U0O lbs. , worth $50, 000 when cpu-verted-into sewing tilk, al a cost of one dollar per pound, which 1 am told is ample when done on al large ecale, from which deduct 5000, snd the ne't profit from my 60 seres ot land will be 45,000. I allow noth ng to pay for rearing the worms, because when multicaulis becomes plentifu', we shxll mow it down and throw it, stems and all, to the worm ; the dimiuiBlied expense of which, together with our present slate buuuty, being amply sufficient to cover ihis item. Pel h ips you will consider me extravagant in my calculations. What! methir.ks I hear you say, 45,000 from 60 acres of thin land in one year, impossible!! lie assured, however, my dear sir, thai 1 was only a little while ago not a year more sceptical upon this subject, than the mest perfect infidel to my present statement can be now; but having carefully examined facts and practice only theory being totally dis regarded I cannot resat creuence io inc rras f evidence 1 meet with both from my own experience and that of others, warranting the assertion that the above is only a patt of what can be accomplished, if energy, enterprise, and a small capital, go hand in lund to work. Mr. K. P. Roberts, whose sincerity cannot be questioned, states (after a careful Dr. and Cr. account with one acie,) thai $1128 33, will niot probably be fcund to be the nett pr fi' from it, if devoted to the culture of Silk, whan the trees have altained 4y years of age; which would Rive $67,699 80 from 60 acres of land; snd the Uev. U V. M'Lean, of. Freehold, N. J., actually raided on one-sixteenth of an acre last iear, from roo's of muliicnul s planted that scisun, the enor.nCus (.mount of thirty-one pounds eleven ounces of ocoons, being about 507 lbs. to the .cre. F.xpcrieiee, then, sanction the b l ef thai my estimate is only a pari of die truth. With tluse views, you will easily be persuaded that no cons deration could induce me to s.'ll alt my tr es. In the early part of the feeding seamn, my superintendent, Mr. Spencer, was decidedly in doubt respecting ihe advantage of the M rus Multicaulis, but is now a lirm convert to fVith in its superiority. -Mr. Osier, a well known and very respectable tailor in our Vdlage assures us that our silk, reeled on one of my improved Piedmontese U;el- is decidedly superior, in every desiratre quality, tu an) he hs ever seen ot i,e produce of this or any o her country, from the while Italian Mulberry. Now, hr, 1 should not have been discouraged if I had lost every worm 1 had attempted to raise this year for the season has been so very wet, and the leaves s i lery succulent, that is is a perfect 'Mracle to me tbey have not all per shed. Well aware ut the deep responsibility I assume in representing the culture of silk from morns multicaulis in feuch glowing colors, whereby manv persons may he induced to em bark in it their whole capital the hard earned savings of a life of toil and al&u of the just ceiiHure 1 should merit from them if I have knowingly deceived them, still 1 dtl berateiy add, that every word above expressed, i t-ue o the best of my knowledge snd belief, and that I am firmly persuaded thai the morus multicaulis is the most valuable tree on earth. With msny apologies for this long letter, and with the assurances of the highest esteem, 1 am, dear sir, jour fiiend and hum. st. PUILIP PHYSICK. To Philip Phtsicst, Esq.., lar Sir I have read your communication with pleasure, and perfectly coincide in opinion witli you on the very important and beneficial effects thai m.y be fairly calculated on from the successful prosecution of the culture of silk, to a c'asa of females laboring under grievances and unmerited sufferings. To them it opens the most cheering prospects of case, comfort and happiness, which in pat limes they could hardly have hoped lor. 1 he sufferings of this clas,have been often urged on the public attention without exciting that sympathy for which their cae so loudly called. Yours, respectfully. Aug. 23, 1339- M. CAREY. A number of new members were added to ihe society; and on the whole, a more cntliu.-ustic, triumphant meeting has never been held in this countrv, on the fcubject of the culture of silk. Had the day been fair, several thousand persons would doubtless have been present. On motion, the society adjourned. RRNUBllTON SMITH, President. 1)A VI n Comfjbt, Jobs Pox, J. Vice Presidents.
