In 1855, St. Martin was in New York
city on his way to Europe, under the aus
pices of Dr. Bunting, of Montreal, to rnn
Uc the savans of the Old World to wit
ness the experiments. : Mr. St. Martin was
then a littk' over" lift y years of age, of a
spare frame, but apparently capable of cou
iidcral)!e 'endurance. He was ia excellent
bodily health, and h id much vivacity of
laauuer. His early life was spent upon the
frontier, and since leaving tho employ of
Dr. "TJeaunibnl he married and has resided
at Montrtal. 1 The opening in the stomach
has had iio' Injurious effect upon his health,
nor hus.it prevented hira from pursuing ac
tive aud aevcrc labor. Indeed, it is possi
ble that his daily knowledge of the effect of
food upon the stomach utay have prevented
him from abusing this important orgau for
the rrratifiention of mouieutarv taste. Ho
is a man of simple taste's in his diet, and, it
ia'gaid, drinks uo ardent spirits. -'"iT'-Mst
In New York, several experi
ments were pc.iacd With Mr. St. Martin
.in presence of some oi the most eminent
physicians of the city. . The brt was that
of mtrodneiiig the thermometer Into vLe
stomach through the opening, from which
iU tcmpernturo was ascertained to be 101
deg. Fahrenheit. Dr. Bunting next intrcj
dnoed into the stomach the gum elastic ca
theter, and extracted nearly an ounce and
half of gastric juice. The third experi
ment, consisted . in causing the patient to
drink two tumblers of water, which was
immediately afterward poured out through
thewiflce into a basin held by Dr. Bunt
frig." ' In regard to the time consumed in
the dieestion of various foods, Dr. B. ob-

-A Weekly Jfew8i)ni)cr, devoted
betweou natural aud artificial digestiou by
a very simple und beautiful experiment.
Iio took (rom tho cnipty stoinneh, at an
enrly iinur In the inoniing, two ounces
gn.',tric Juice, which ho divided into two
equal purlH, and placed hi separate vials, In
each of which he placed a given quantity
of roast beef. , The ono was placed iu a
fund bath at 09 degrees, mid tho other in
the opi'ii air at 39 degrees. Ho likewise
put the same quantity of meat Into a like
portion of clear water, and intermixed a
similar portion with gastric juice, previous
ly extracted, of the temperature of the air.
Tho meat in tho fresh gastric juice, placed
iu tho warm bath, proceeded toward diges
tion as if contained in the stomach, and
was finally wholly digested by the addition
of a further quantity of 'gastric juice.
Tiiut contained iu the water was simply
macerated, and that la the gastric juice
having a low tcmpcruturo was effected but
slightly. ' ::.!
The series of experiments instituted by
Dr. Beaumont to uscertain the time retir
ed to digit the various articles of food,
are familiar to medical and scientific men.
Boiled rice was found to requiro only one
hour to digest, and pork Gve hours, these
two being tiie extremes. These experi
ments, also, as a general rule, confirmed
the opinion previously entertained, thut far
inaceous vegetables urc more easily digest
ed than succulent and wild game, and the
meat of full-grown animals than those
which are young.
Another very important law of digestion
developed, was, that fluids, like soups and
broths, require to have their nutritious par
ticles converted into a solid substanco be
fore they can be acted upon by he gastric
juice; the cousequence is, thut all such ali
ments are lcrs adapted for weak stomachs
than more solid food. Occasionally St.
ilartin's temper, although usually placid,
bcct.'e violently ruffled. The effect upon
tho diV-stivc process was instantaneous and
decided. Digestion proceeded, 'but instead
of tho formation of healthy chyme, tho
stomach contain J a ''. grud-liko sub
stance, much tinged with bile, which, under
the ordinary circumstances, is not to be
found withiu it.
The case or St. Martin is altogether a
peculiar one, the like, singularly enough,
not buug fouud on record. It is at the
same time one of marked iutercst, not only
on account of what hr.s already been con
tributed by it to w knowledge of diges
tion, but what wo may hereafter reasona
bly expect from it
It is wMthy of remark Unit St Martin's
life has been a regular onu, aud tluit, con
seqner.tly, tiie experiments made in ad
vaiHVd years are as valuaUe as those pros
ecuted .in his youth.

We nsk no reply; we only suggest that if
England chooses to regard the slave trade
as the greatest of human crimes, and its ex
tinction an object worth fleets, quarrels,
und wars, then she may some day be culled
on to prove her sincerity by acquiescing iu
the only nieuus to tins end, however disa
greeable. N c only wish Unit Spam could
be warned in time; but warning is not for
Spain. . Had sho listened to warning, she
might still have stood in the first class of
nations. But, as far as Spain is concerned,
we mtit bow to Lord Palmerstou's author
ity. Sho only regards force. Unfortu
nately, with all our cruisers, we hno not
the sumo leverage upon her as that iu tlie
hands of our A mcriean cousins. We may
vainly attempt to watch her ports end scru
tinize her traffic; once they step in, they
will wipo out not only tho slave trade, but
Cuba itself, from the list of Spanish ini
quities. London Times, July 14.
Tho Spanish race in America seems to
be in tho same wretched plight as the
Turks in Kurope: their rulo is drawing to
a close. The United States' eagle will
fasten his talons in Cuba whenever the op
portunity occurs, nud would have done so
long ere this if (Jrcat Britain had not pro
tested. The Mexican Republic is fast go
ing to the dogs, and will bo sjwcdily ab

other cause of war has arisen which Jona
llinn will speedily turn to a practical pur
pose. It will be a real blessing to the
cause of humanity and of progress to res
cue 'one of tho fairest portions of the globe
from such weuk and unscrupulous hands.
The Mexicans, it is well known, hate the
Americans intensely, and the northern pro
vinces of Mexico are entertaining tho no
tion of separating from tho parent State,
and found. ug a distinct Republic; but they
may spare themselves the trouble, for it is
more than probable that the authorities at
Washington will have a voice Iu tho affair.

JSy A correspondent of tlie Cincinnati
Gazette, writing from Hunterdon county,
X. J., tells the following story : , " There is
a goose in my neighborhood that has seen
the frosts of 83 winters, owned by one Mr,
Schomp. This goose, famous for its great
age, has been kept by the Schomp family
ever since the Revolutionary war. When
the news came lo Redington township,
Hunterdon county, that the war was ended,
and that they were a free people, they col
lected to have a general drinking jollifica

eral rush into the yard, where there were
four geese, three of these were killed, and
the one that escaped is that which I
now speak of. Two years ago she laid four
eggs, which she hatched. The young fam

The SriniT of '76. When tho news of
the full of Ticonderogn reached Exeter, John
Lnngdon, who was the speaker of the Prov
incial Legislature of New Hampshire, then
in session, seeing tho public credit exhaust
ed, and his compatriots discouraged, rose
and said: "I lmvo n thousand dollars in
hard money; I will pledge my phi to for
three thousand more; I have seventy hogs
heads of Tobn rum, which will he sold for
the most it will bring. These are at the
service of tho State. If we succeed in de
fending our firesides and homes, I may be re
munerated; if wo do not, then the property
will be of no value to mo. Our friend
Stark, wdio so nobly maintained the honor of
our Stato at Bunker Hill, may safely be
entrusted with tho honor of the enterprise,
and we will check the progress of Bur
goyne." It is well known that from this
noble offer sprang the gallant little army of
Stark's that covered itself with glory at
Bennington, These were tho deeds that
make our history venerable, and consecrate
The Toad at his Repast. Few of our
readers most probably have ever observed
the toad at his repast. It is performed
with electric rapidity, nnd with more than
telegraphic precision. ' The tongue is doub
led back iipon itself, aud is tipped with a
glutinous secretion. Tho moment the bee-
tlo comes within range, the tongue is shot
forth with unerring aim, and ouiek as liarht-
ning the captive is withdrawn. They are
invaluable in a garden, Mr. Jesse, in his
gleanings, complains of gardeners destroy
ing them, of savagely cutting them in two
with their spades. . Wo hope not. Horti
culturists of such "gross ignorance" ought
themselves to be c.tirpuled. Tho beauty
and vigor of our flower-borders wo have
long useribed, in a measure, to a select fam
ily of toads, which we tenderly protect,
and some of which havo now reached a
patriarchal age. Mr, Jesso mentions that
Mr. Knight, the eminent nurseryman, keeps
a lurge number of toads in his stoves, for
the purjwse of destroying the Woodlicc that
infest his plants, and that they Co not seem
at all affected by the heat, even wheu it
reaches 130 degrees. Wo are surprised at
this latter statement, which does not agree
with our observation. We have observed
that tho toad in very hot weather seeks
shelter under foliutfe, or buries himself
amongst the soft mould. In tho evening
he emerges from his concealment, and no
doubt then employs his protrusile tongue
Mr. Buckland mentions a curious use of
toads. They arc employed ns iuscctrtraps.
A brigade of marauding toads are con
ducted into the garden iu the evening.
They make a famous supper, bnt ia the
morning their entomological employer, by
a gentle squeeze, compels them to disgorge
their evening meal, " and in this way many
curious and rare specimens of rare and mi
nute nocturnal insects have been obtained."
" There is just now," says Mr. Buckland,
" a plague of ants in many of the London
houses, which defy extermination. I strong
ly recommend those who are troubled with
these plagues to try whether a toad or two
won't help them," Most certainly. They
clean melon frames of these insects, and
why should they not perform the same

practice with modern Judaism to disown,
and that iu tho strongest terms, all feeling
of hostility to tho Christian religion. A
letter recently appeared in ono of tho daily

against the common belief that Jews must
necessarily lie opponents of Christianity.
He maintains that, so far from this Whig

t3r Rurey's career iu England has un
cxpectedly been stopped. He hud cleared
some $75,000 to $100,000 by bis horse
taming secret, when suddenly Ilotttledge,
the London cheap publisher, got hold of a
piimphh-t published by tho horse-tamer in
America, and printed it. It contains in a
small compass all the tu ts of horse-turning,
and the subscribers, who had bound them
selves not to divulge the secret under n pen
alty of $2,500, became furious, nnd Mr.
Rnrcy had to relensc them from their pledge
in a letter lo the Times. In this letter ho
states that the pamphlet iu question is ono

since, when his system was not perfect, and
that nioro will be learned from his practical ;
lessons in ono hour thuu from the book in

Gold pRonmtoN fou 1857. The pro- '
dtiction of gold In Australia for tho past
year is Ret down by tho best English uu
titorilies at one hundred millions of dollars.
The production in other countries is esti
mated as follows: California, $50,000,
000: Russia and Siberia, $20,000,000:
otiier parts of tho world, $15,000,000.
We thus havo two hundred millions as
tho gold crop of 1857, and the actual am
ount is likely to be rather more than tho .
estimated aggregate. At this rate, two -thousand
millions of gold will bo thrown
into the tnoiietury circulation of the world
during tho ucxt ten years.
