the condition of the seceded States, and course to be pursued with the garrison at Fort Sumter were discussed, Floyd and Thompson dwelling upon the irritation of the Southern heart, and the folly of continuing a useless garrison to increase the irrits a long and stormy one, Mr. Holt, feebly seconded by the President, urging the immediate reinforcement of Sumter, while Thompson, Floyd, and Thomas contended that a quasi-treaty had been made by the officers of the Government with the leaders of thes of Government property. Floyd especially blazed with indignation at what he termed the violation of honor. At last Mr. Thompson formally moved that an imperative order be issued to Major Anderson to retire from Sumter to Fort Moultrie--abandoning, and the men who had so long ruled and bullied the President, were surprised and enraged to be thus rebuked. Floyd and Thompson sprang to their feet with fierce, menacing gestures, seeming about to assault Stanton. Mr. Holt took a step forward to
A Degenerate son.--Gen. Albert G. Blanchard, of the Confederate Army, is a native of Charlestown, Mass.; was educated at its free schools, and married for his first wife a niece of the late Hon. Benjamin Thompson. His second wife was a native of Louisiana, and hence his secession proclivities. He distinguished himself for bravery in the Mexican war. Several of our merchants were his schoolmates, and a distinguished clergyman of Brooklyn, N. Y., is his son. Boston Transcript, March 3.
A brave Jerseyman.--A newspaper correspondent writing from Roanoke Island, says: The most remarkable case in hospital is a man named John Lorrence, of Gloucester county, N. J., a corporal of company K, Ninth New-Jersey, who had both legs carried away by a canister-shot, in the battle of the eighth ultimo. One leg was amputated by Dr. Thompson, Surgeon of the First brigade, and the other by Dr. Rivers, of the Fourth Rhode Island. The brave fellow had hardly recovered from the effects of the chloroform administered, when the wild cheers of the army told the story of our success. He raised himself upon his arm and with an enthusiasm which thrilled the bystanders, waved his cap in the air and gave three hearty cheers for the Union. Baltimore American, March 19.

An elevated seat for the driver. 2. A console. A bracket. Per′co-la-tor. A filter. The term is specifically applied to the filter of the pharmacist; and to the French coffee-pot, in which the boiling water is filtered through the ground coffee. The coffee-percolator was invented by Benjamin Thompson, Count Rumford. It consists of an upper cylindrical vessel with a perforated bottom, in which the ground coffee is placed and covered with a perforated disk having a stem by which it may be pressed down so as to compact the coffee and allow boiling water poured thereon to percolate the mass and pass into the coffee-pot below. In Jones's percolator the lower vessel is heated by a spiritlamp, and the generated steam forces the water up through a pipe at the side and filters through t
nterested to see what he gave to students. There were twenty or more excellent notes on astronomy and optics, and only one on magnetism and one on electricity. Professor Winthrop assisted at certain astronomical events; made interesting observations on the earthquake which visited Cambridge in 1755, and which was sufficiently powerful to throw bricks from a chimney of the professor's house across the pathway. He was elected member of the Royal Society of London. Count Rumford, then Benjamin Thompson, it is said, walked from Woburn to Cambridge to hear Professor Winthrop lecture. After Winthrop came Rev. Mr. Williams; then Professor Farrar, a remarkable lecturer. Up to the year 1830, astronomy and physics were the only sciences to which much attention was paid in Cambridge. There were no laboratories even in chemistry. In 1816, Dr. Jacob Bigelow was appointed Rumford professor and lecturer on the application of science to the useful arts. He was perhaps the earliest citize

Chauncy, Willard, Kirkland, and Quincy. Cambridge is associated in the minds of thousands of Americans with scientific achievements of lasting worth. Here lived Dr. Benjamin Waterhouse, the first Hersey professor of physic, who introduced the kine-pox into America, and John Winthrop, Hollis professor of natural philosophy from 1738 to 1779, one of the very earliest students of the phenomena of earthquakes, the friend and correspondent of Benjamin Franklin, and the man whose lectures Benjamin Thompson (Count Rumford) walked from Woburn to hear. For two generations Asa Gray has turned the thoughts of innumerable students of botany, young and old, to Cambridge as the place where their guide into botanical science lived and wrote. For two hundred and sixty years the lamp of philosophy has been kept burning in this quiet town, and that illumination makes it a brighter place to live in for the present and the coming generations.
