EDITED BY J. C. ROBERTSON.

VOL. XLVIII,

“Objects of utility, not amusement, are now the things which command the attention of the scientific
world. The metaphysicians of old occupied themselves in discussing the possibility of two spirits occupy-
ing the same place in the same space of time, or the divisibility of spirit. The philosophers of the present
age confine themselves to the divisibility of matter—what they can see with their eyes, hear with their
ears, and handle with their hands. The spirit of investigation now directed in a right manner--in the true
Baconian spirit-traces effects to their causes, and never looks upon a result as worthy of consideration,
unless the world in some manner is benefited; and the world now, embraces not only princes and patri-
cians, but also mechanics and artizans."-PORTER.
