Yet every one hereabouts is hoping of Naumberg in Saxony, yearly* as a its severity will be tempered to suit the day of thanks*siving and rejoicing. The shorn lamb. For since the first furrow' Bohemians who were Protestants, and was plowed on these prairies there has, friends and followers of John Huss who was burned at the stake in 1415 during the wars that followed his persecution and death, resolved to destroy the city of Naumberg and exterminate its inhab- Uants for having voted for his death.— that had be-tniyed him into the hands of his ene* mies, though he forgave, they resolved on the destruction of that city in revenge for the death of the great and good man, their beloved friend and leader. They were in despair, and saw themselves wholly in the power of their enemies led on bv a brave and determined general who was resolved on their bitter destruction More than one generation had passed away,but the children were to suffer for the cruel deed of th-ir fathers. It was the custom then among the Germans, for the mourners at their funerals to carry in their hands a s:reen bough and a /eiwrn; and all the children of the city were collected and sent into the camp of the Hussites, each bearing in their hands, these funeral emblems and every one dressed in a .sAr 7/rf. These little supplicants fell on their knees and prayed for the pardon and salvation of their friends, and of their homes for the lives of their relatives and for their own.— They were jorgiven. TJefreshments were prepared for them and as it was in the month of July they were regaled with cherries and branches of the tree placed in their hands in place of the sad em biems of mourning they had borne on Jht'ir arrival. The terrifie'l Naumberg-ers au-aited in anxious suspense the return of the shrouded, youthful, army they had sent into the camp of their e i-emies, w'ifh scarcely a hope that their tears and prayers would avail to save their lives and their city. Great was their joy. .-md grateful their hearts when in the distance a long line of little whiti-figures was seen approaching, their tiny arms tossing the green boughs in the air and the delighted thr-ng singing songs of njoicing for their deliverance. Their tears had softened the heart of tl-.eir enemy and in commemoration of this day that began in darkness and ended in light, the people of Naumberg instituted the “ Feast of Cherries,'* in the observance of which the children take a prominent part. Crowned with flowers, and gaily attired, they walk in procession through the streets, always carrying the bough of cherry, and with a pride of feeling, that they were the saviors of friends and home, the believers of their fathers and mothers from destruction and the institutions of the ^'’Kirschenfesi" Festival days are apt to hare a tragic element in their history. The more tragic, the greater the rejoicing. The martyrdom of Hnss, and a determination nearly three score years thereafter, to devote a city, with its inhabitants to destruction to avenge his death,—combined have institu^ed, as one of its smallest results—a Festival. This alone would be a Jiltle matte- kindled by a great fire. Bu t i ‘ all the int-idents could be spread before our mortal vision that have been and will be, born of these two facts of history he mieht think perhaps that even our most trifling acts are not so trifling as they seem, and in our surprise cry out, how great a matter a little fire kindletk^ been no year comparable to this for short crops.

One of the first settlers of Aurora tells me that he has raised more poor corn this year than he has in the fwenty-five years he has pre viously lived here. If the yankees have not raised enough for their own consumption they will be obliged to “ go down to Egypt,” (southern HI.) this year for their supplies. Wheat was i hardly an average crop here, owing to the depredations of the chintz bug The dry weather was peculiarly favorable tor them and as the wheat ripened they betook themselves to the corn-fields injur-ing that crop considerably and in some instances utterly ruining acre^ as if by fire Oats were uiiivt-rsaliy good, and potatoi s very go ‘d or very bad j'jst as they happened to be located and injured by the Sept frost.

An Iron Making Insect. Prof. Wilbur contributes the following curions item to a Southern journal: Bog-Iron aside from its commercial uses, becomes a matter of considerable interest when we consider the pro ess of its formation. It is constantly accumti lating in the water of certain localities by means of a little insect which works day and night, selecting the tinv iron morsels held in solution in the water and depositing it in the sfructures of iron which he builds out of it This little manager is not one four-hundredth of an inch in diameter, but he and his co-geners have more iron than would be needed in building all the railroads for a hundred years. The n -me of this artificer iniron is Galvtnrlle Fern/sriuerr. and belongs to the same general order as the coral reefs The latter only select ?>ar-ticles of lime, and like the iron insect is very fastidious in hi«! tastes. Each would reject the others trade. Another insect of the same general order works at crockery making—or which i« the same thing, he selects the fine particles of c’ay and deposits them in what is called a marl pit, which affords materia l iix our dishes. P e rp e tu a l Motion. About six years ago,we published th first ds^scripfion ot a maohine invented by Mr. Janies G. Hendrickson, Freehold, New Jersey, “ to go of itself,” model, which Mr. Hendrickson had made after patient whittleing for forty years, was brought into our office, and we foimd that it would go without any impulse from without, and would not stop unless it was blocked. The power was self-contained and self-adjusted, and gave a sufficient force to carry or dinary clock work without any winding up or replenishing.—In short, we see no reason why it should not go until it was worn out. Our announcement of the fact brought out a great deal of ridicule; the incredulous pointed out all of the projects to obtain a perpetual motion power which had failed in the past, and predicted the same disgrace for the same invention. Many scientific gentlemen visited it. and although they could not dispute the fict that it was “ going,’’ they nearly all attributed the movement to some hidden spring, or ingenious trickery. The inventor was an old man. who had spent his whole life in pursuit of the object he had now attained. He had become so much accustomed to ridicule, that he was very patient under it; and the only reply he made to the cavilers who pronounced the thing impossible. but it does go!" The notice which we printed attracted the attention of the curious, and for the first time in his history the inventor found a profit in his handiwork He was invited to be present at various fairs, and exhibitions of new inventions, and wherever he went, his machina form d one of the chief attractions. Science however, turned np its nose at him, and determined to put him down The prolessors were all against him and as they had pronounced the whole thing a h'lm-bug, they were determined to prov • the truth of th'-ir assertion. Accordingly, .Mr, Hendrickson was seized at Ke}'port New Jersey, for praoti ing ‘jugglery. ’ under the ‘ Act for suppressing vice and iinrnoraiify. ’ At the trial, several builders, mill-wrights. engineers and philosophers were called, who testified postively that no such motive power as that alledged. couM drive the machine, and that there must be some concealed spring within the wooden cylinder — I'h^re was no help for it; and the imposter nmst be exploded. An axe was brought, and the cylinder splintered into fragnunls. Alas! for the philosophers, there was no concealed spring, itid the machine, 'lad ar,)„p i>f' ■' — Rut alas! also, for poor Hcndrickson. the machine would go no more v^'ith trembling hands he azain resumed his spectacles and his jacknite. His model once more completed, he had a new ma chi.'ie constructed of brass, hollow throughout, so that the eye could examine all its parts. This was brought to our office nearly two years ago. when we noticed it once more, an I gave to our readers some of the facts we have now recalled The inventor was trying to secure a patent for his discovery but the work went on slowly. The I'atent. Office required a working model to test the principle, and one was sent to Washington. The moment the bl"cks were were taken off the wheels started off, “ like a thing of life,” and during ten months that the model remained in the Patent Office, it never once stopped to breath. The inventor had perfected two new machines and made a very comfortable livelihood exhibiting them, prosecuting his efforts meanwhile to secure his patent, intending to apply the power to clock-woik for which it is peculiarly adapted. Age crept upon him. however, before this point was reached; his highest art could not make his heart-beating perpetual; and last Saturday afternoon he breathed his last, in the old homestead at Freehold. He had been so much persecuted by the incredulous, that he had provided a secret place beneath the floor of his shop where his last two machines were deposited It was in the form of a vault, covered by a trapdoor which was locked, and the floor so replaced as to avoid suspicion After his last illness commenced, he made known this secret to his family, who examined the spot carefully, and found the contents exactly as described- The night after his 'ieath the shop was broken open, the floor taken i-p. the trap d'tor pried off. and both models stolen. It is probable that the family in their visits had not taken the same precaution as the inventor and some prying eyes had discovered the secret. Fortunately the drawings are preserved, and there is a little machine, one of the earliest made, now running in Brooklyn, wh re it has kept up its ceaseless ticking for nearly six years. Mr. Hendrickson leaves a family of four sons and four dangh ters, all of them, we believe, given to inventions. Had he died ten years airo how emphaticly would it have been said that his life has been wasted in ‘ the hopeless effort to obtain perp tual motion.” [N.
