.'Momentum. When two locomo
tives, having equal speed on a raiN
road track, meet from opposite di
rections, the shock actually destroys
the momentum, of both, and, there
fore, makes a dead halt. The force
of the shock pro'duced by the two
bodies, say the philosophers, will be
equal to the shock which either, be
0 ing at rest, would sustain if struck by
the other moving with double the ve
locity? Action and reaction being
equal, both bodies will be as much
moved by reaction as by action.
Should two railroad trains, run--nitv'.
towards each other at the rate
of 20 miles an hour, collide, the
shock would be precisely the same as
though one had been at a rest and
been struck by a train moving 40
miles an hour. Were two steam
boats to run directly together, head
on otje going 12 and the other 15
miles an hour the conclusion or
shock each would suffer would be as
though struck by the other at a speed
of 25 miles an hour. Without stop
ping to philosophize upon the cauge,
boxers and pugilists know, by dear
bought experience, that the worst
blows they receive in their combats
are when a fist strikes a fist, because
the force suffered by both parties is
equal to the sum of the forces exert
cd by their arm. The adroit fighters,
-therefore, always avoid encounters of
- that kind, if possible.

New Cabinet Editions mt the Worki
of Washington Irrlng.
In announcing several new editions, in
a style of improved elegance and conveni
ence, of the Works of Washington Irving,
the publisher would take the opportunity
of acknowledging the good reception
which his efforts in the presentation of
these favorite writings have heretofore re
ceived. In the several forms in which the
various productions of the author of the
"Sketch-Book" have been given to the
public, it is estimated that the sale has
reached no less than fifty thousand of the
series, or more than a million volumes.
Nor is the demand yet abated. On the
contrary, new exertions of enterprise are
required to meet the desires of a new gen
eration of readers, and keep pace with the
progress of taste and refinement in the
typographic and other mechanic arts of
the publisher's calling.
The motive of this perennial popularity
is not far to seek. It is to be read on every
page of the delightful volumes in which
Geoffrey Crayon" infused the happy in
spiration of his genius in his devotion to
themes which will always be regarded by
successive generations of readers with no
ordinary emotions of interest The charm
of the felicitous style of Washington Irving,
the reflection of the amiable poetic spirit
of the truly refined gentleman, would be
felt on any topic on which the author
had been pleased to bestow it. But it is
for the ever-enduring fame of Irving that
he cl ose for the exercise of his pen, topics
of undying value and importance. In his
inviting Essays on human life and charac
ter in portraying manners.as in the "Sketch
Book," "Bracebridge Hall," and other
volumes, he has touched, with mingled
sentiment and humor, those emotions
which are implanted in the hearts of all ;
while his topics of biography, of history
and romance, are of such world-wide cel
ebrity and passionate interest as the story
of Columbus and his followers, with their
discoveries of the New World ; the life of
the founder of the nation, George Wash
ington, drawing with it the narrative of
the Civil and Military events of America
during his remarkable career; the marvel
ous record of Mahomet, with the illustra
tions of the genius of his race in the rom
antic fact and legend of " The Tales of the
Alhombra" and the " Conquest of Gra
nada the felicity with which the author
has linked his name with the birthplace of
Shakespeare, the genius of Oliver Gold
smith, the fame of Scott and Byron, and.
not least, the humorous invention which,
in Knickerbockers irresistible Chronicle
of New York, has imputed a mythic inter
est to the bare early annals of his native
city. It is thus that the writings of Wash
ington Irving may be claimed to be im
perishable, till, what is not likely soon to
happen, the same ever-welcome themes
are treated in some happier manner. The
charm of Irving is his acceptability to all,
a grace and refinement to please the
most fastidious ; and his peculiar merit is
readily appreciated by every reader ; his
good sense and humor, the air of enjoy
ment pervading his pages, has secured his
works a home in both hemispheres, wher
ever the English language is understood.
Of the few indispensable authors in every
American library, Washington Irving is j
certainly among the foremost The de
light of childhood, the chivalric companion
of refined womanhood, the solace of life at
every period, his writings are an imper
ishable legacy of grace and beauty to his
The new publications of these works

To Manufacturers. We have for
many years studied the art of advertise
ing. and it still remains to us a marvel
that there is not one hundred times more
of it. Forney's Press says : We never yet
knew a man to advertise his wares liber
ally and steadily, that it did not pay. Yet
there are thousands of manufacturers
through this State, and tens of- thousands
of men having articles which they declare
ought to be in every household in the
country," who advertise as gingerly and
closely ag though they had at" heart no
faith m it at nil. How can they expect to
get their goods everywhere, unless some
knowledge of tU articles nets into the familu
Jirst, through the fumity paper? If we
waited till people teamed from their
neighbors, we might wait for rears before
the most wonderful aci useful invention
became known. Oa this subject, we have
the following from an exeiange :
" Why don't you deal with ose?" said a
close-fisted tradesman to a friend the tfc?r
day. The reply was characteristic : " You
have never invited me. sir. I have leoked
all through the paper for an invitation in
tit? shape of an advertisement, and ibnnd
woe ; never go where I am not in
vited." raer is a moral to this. Ji you are
ADVERTtSlN'G A5D ITS COST.
A successful and intelligent business
man thus writes the result of his observa
tions and experience :
Few business men advertise systemat
ically, liberally and persistently. Those
who pay most attention to it, either adver
tise fitfully or with a degree of neglect
which they would regard culpable in any
other department of their business. What
would a merchant be thought of who only
opened his store now and then, to invite
and secure customers ! Yet an advertise
ment in a flourishing paper is more con
spicuous than one's store, is more observed,
and more spoken of, and to withdraw it is
like putting up the shutters or taking
down the sign. The most enterprising
merchants and traders in the interior
think themselves liberal if they spend a
few hundred dollars a year for advertising.
They would deem the farmer blind to his
own interest who should be stingy in
planting, and should fail to put in seed in
proper quantity, because it cost something.
Advertising is the seed-planting of the
business men, and stinginess here must
make the harvest meagre.
What shall be the sum appropriated to
advertising ! It will vary with the char
acter and extent of the business. But the
smallest trade can be made more profit
able by liberal advertising. The rule is
sometimes given that as much should be
paid for advertising as for rent. This
may be too much in some cases, too little
in others. But every business ought to
be kept constantly and prominently be
fore the readers of the established papers
of the parish from which trade is sought.
The readers of newspapers are the most
enterprising and intelligent of the popula
tion, and usually ,have the most money to
spend. Reach them, and keep their at
tention, and you will create a current
which others will follow.
The New York Tribune states that it is
true, as reported, that a Boston druggist,
who has a specialty before the public, is
paying that establishment ten thousand
dollars a year for advertising ; he paid
one thousand five hundred dollars for the
insertion of one mammoth advertisement.
The Tribune adds :
" Bonner once paid us three thousand
dollars for one insertion of an advertise
ment of the Ledger. He knew that by ju
dicious advertising he could insure a
This seems large, but in England such
sums are hardly exceptional. There ad
vertising is a regular part of business. It
is reckoned as necessary as rent and often
ten times as much is spent for it. Adver
tising must be done so as to reach the peo
ple whose custom is sought. A separate
sheet, a hand-bill or a circular, is a direct
attack ; and the person who receives it
either throws it aside without reading, or
he puts himself on the defensive against it.
A notice in the favorite paper is a flank
movement ; it catches the eye unawares ;
it at.racts attention at an idle or a listless
moment ; it becomes part of the current
news. Then it is like the constant drop
ping. It may not be read to-day. To
morrow it will be glanced at. The next
week it will be looked over. Finally it
will be read. When a purchase is to be
made ; when trade is to be transferred
from the former dealer ; when a new arti
cle is needed, the notice will be hunted up
and the inducements offered subjected to
test. One such case often will pay for
one year's advertising.
Sometimes men get along without ad
vertising. Instances are given of pilgrims
reaching Mecca on their knees. It is
easier, pleasanter, swifter to go by steam.
Liberal and discreet advertising puts
business on wheels, and renders it active,
beneficent to the public, and remunera
tive to the dealer.

The American Watch Company, of Walt

Watches are cheaper, more accurate, less
complex, more durable, better adapted for
general use,and more easily kept in order and
repaired than any watches in the market.
They are simpler in structure, and therefore
stronger, and less likely to be injured than
the majority of foreign watches, which are
composed of from 125 to S00 pieces, while in
an old English watch there are more than
700 parts. How they run under the hardest
trial watches can have, is shown by the fol
lowing letter :

we furnish watches as part of our equipment.

bave great satisfaction in saying your
watches give us less trouble, and'have worn
and do wear much longer without repairs
than any watches we have ever had in use
on this road. As you are aware, we formerly
trusted to those of English manufacture, of
acknowledged good reputation; but as a
class they never kept time as correctly, nor
bave they done as good service, as yours.
In these statements I am sustained by my
predecessor, Mr. Lewis, whose experience
extended over a series of years.
