Centra, August 3, 1826. 95 From the New-York Spectator. We have received a printed circular, of which the following is a copy, from one of tire officers of Rensselaer School. We publish it because the ultimate object of the school is .better explained here thari in any other publication which.we have seen. It sets forth, in a i'ew words, the philan- thropic ( vie\vs of the amiable and unosten- tatious founder of the School. Instead of splendid endowments of institutions with high sounding titles, for the education of poets and orators, who may sing and pro- claim him as another Macenas; he is di- recting his best thoughts, his influence, and his surplus wealth, to the important pur- pose of elevating the character of the hardy iieenieii of our country. On being request- ed to endow a professorship in a respecta- ble college, he, replied: \I approve the measure, and feel a high respect for your college. But I feel it a higher duty to de- vote whatever can be spared from the needs of my numerous family, to the assistance of that portion of citizens, who can show hard hands as testimonials of their usefulness.\ Land near Geneva. -g^OR Sale, 75 acres of &AHSJ. lying 6. one mile and an half from this village, 18 acres of which is cleared, and the resi- due in wood.

A plan has bein proposed by the Honor- able Stephen Van Rensselaer, of Albany, for extending to every class of citizens the benefits of those departments of scientific knowledge, which are most intimately con- nected with the common concerns of life. For this purpose young gentlemen are prepared for giving instruction upon his plan, at a school established by himself for this and for other objects, in Troy, N. Y. in the year 1824, which was incorporated by a legislative act, in March, 1826. These jristructers are sent to different districts, with directions to conduct courses of in- struction as follows : They are to give lectures on the evenings of Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, to. popular classes, on experimental Chemis- tiy, with its applications. Young gentle- man, fiom four to ten in number, selected by the evening class, are to be taught upon the Rensselaer plan ; that is, they are to be present and assist in the piefiarations foi the evening lectures and experiments, which they are severally to repeat in the form of experimental lectures on die following davs. The schoolmaster of the district ought al- ways to be one of the experimental class. By this method, ••evei.il lesidents may be qualified, at a very cheap rate, for instruct- ing others; so that every individual of e\e- n vocal ion may, in a few yea is, become familiar with the principles and manipula- tions of expci imental chemistry, with their applications to the arts and manufactures, as well as to agneultuie and the other va- rious concerns of life, without any material Joss of time. The course of instruction is not limited to chemistry. Natmal Philosophy and Na- tural History will be taught on different evenings upon the same plan. Those who attend the popular course, will be compen- sated by much pleasure and profit; though the principal object should be, to qualify a number of residents in every district for perpetuating the practical sciences among those whom they will aid most in all then- important operations. It is presumed, that the disinterested munificence of the pation of this plan of education, will he duly ap- preciated by every individual to whom it is made known, and that sufficient sums will be paid by those gentlemen and ladies, who attend the Evening course of lectures, to de- fray the expenses necessaiy for instructing the experimental class. Chemical apparatus is now so far simpli- fied, and collections in Natural History are now so easily obtained, that any school district can afford the necessary expense for perpetuating these sciences. Fifty dollars will procine apparatus and specimens for giving a very profitable course in Chemis- try, Natural Philosophy, and Natural His- tory, with their amplication to Agriculture, Domestic Economy, the Aits and Manufac- tures. One hundred and fifty dollars, eco- nomically expended in procuring appara- tus, &ic. will be sufficient fur a course as full as any school clistiict will need. Where the districts a;e very small, four or five, or any other convenient number, may unite and lit up a laboratory in a central situa- tion, where a definite number from each school may be taught annually, until every youth in each distiict shall become experi- mentally acquainted with those useful sci- ences, and with their application to daily exigencies. Though this undertaking is of vast im- portance in its tendencies, it is unquestion- ably practicable. Should it succeed, it must necessarily improve the state of soci- ety inoie than any other scheme hitherto proposed. When the human mind receive' a bias in favor of the study of Nature, it is immediately withdrawn from all vicious and fiivolous pursuits. No one will question the correctness of the often repeated saying, that \ the next step to the contemplation of Nature, is that of Nature's God.\ SAM'r. BLATCHFOUD, Pres't. VVhole JVo. 898. ginally may he, in time it becomes filthy and unwholesome, bv the great number of privies, sinks, sewers, slublts, fyc. the fi th from which penetrates into them. But where it is procured from a greater depth, from beneath some compact stratum, by bo- ring and tubing, all these and every other impurity from the surface of. the earth is effectually excluded. Perhaps there is no place in the United States where the dis- covery vvill be more intrinsically valuable, than in the city of New-York, for her-lo- cality seems to forbid the hope of ever ob- taining an adequate supplv by aqueducts. But of the feasibility of furnishing her ci- tizens am, ly with the best of water, by .the means of boring, there can be ntf«doubt; and it must be gratifying to the reflecting part of her inhabitants to know that the Manhattan Company are now making the expei iinent. It is said that Mr. Disbrow has for sexeral months had a set- of hands employed in boring for this company ; that he commenced his operationa in the bottom of a well foity feet deep, njiich had been sunk to the granite rock, which subtends at a greater or less depth, the whole city, and the greater part of York Island; and he has penetrated to the depth of 180' feet, and opened several veins of as soft and uuio watir as ever fell from the clouds, which has risen to within SO feet of the suiface. This rock (a sample of which I have seen) appears to be neaily as hard as flint, with a verv sharp grit; of course the process is extremely tedious, and requires murh pa- tience and pevseverence in the operators; hut that it may eventually be perforated through there can be little doubt; and there is as iittle doubt\ that there will be found beneath it anabundant supply bf water, and that upon being properly tubed to suf- ficient depth, there will be copious dischar- ges of it above the surface. These conclu- sions are fully \\ arrantqd by the experiments made by Mr. Disbrow in this place and vi- cinity, as well as at Jersey City, where the rock perforated is exactly similar to that of New-York. And let the fact once be as- certained, only by a single experiment, that good water, and a plentiful supply, may be obtnined in the city of New-York by such process, and however ttdious and expensive the operation may r:°, numerous fountains will soon be commenced, and prosecuted with spirit in every ward 11. it, un- til all the citizens are supplier]. In a place containing 170.000 inhabitants, &. so much wealth, so illy supplied as it now i«. the value of such adiscovciy is incalculable. Nor is the attainment ol such fountains I' ss an object in some of ihe agricultural districts of our country, where they are des- titute of running streams in dry seasons, and their wells ful. W here they hive aU, their water to cart from a distance for fam- ily use, and stock lo drive every day to seme distant pnnrl or brook for water, it is a dis- ticssing inconvenience, and occasions a great loss of time. But by the plan of pro- curing limning fountains by boring, all these inconveniences may not only be a- voiflfd, but every farmer may have a dairy ananged in such a way, as to have the coir} watei from Ins fountain flowing around Ins in 1!k pans, and theieby render the prodnet of his dairy much gieater. and much moie valuable.—X Brunswick Times.

' The discovery which JraS'beeh made by Mr. Disbr^ugh, in this;jjia\e and Vicinity, that running fountains of the coldest and purest water, may be obtained by boring, is one of immense importance to various districts of our country, and especiallv in compactly-built towns and cities, wRich crtbnot be supplied by aqueducts: [for-i'r> all. such places, however pure and'excellent the water piocured from ordinary wells ori- Frtrm the v ^Vf/-/' inland FnTner. DISEASC IN PEAR TREES. I w ill describe the effects of the -ipparent disease, for disease in the tree itself it is not. In the latter end of June or in July, one or more limbs of a tree in the fullest vigor, with ftuit often upon them, and with shoots of the same year, perhaps 18 inches long, full of sap, suddenly appear blasted—in three days the wood becomes dry and hard; and the fi nit itself is dessicated, and so hard as to le tut with difficulty with a knife.— The effpet in short is precisely the same as if you had sawed off the limb and thrown it on the woodpile; and so it ought to be, for in effect it has been sawed by the teeth or rather instruments of a minute insect.— The first tree of mine which was attacked in this manner was a healthy St. Michael's gear. This was in June, 1816. I cutoff one of the diseased limbs, and spent many hours before I detected the cause of the evil. The insert is «o small, its place of operation so concealed (no ex- ternal hole or swelling to lead you to detect it) that it requires-much care to find it.— Yet when discovered, the injury was quite sufficient to'produce alj the effect—he had eaten from the root of a bud, behind which, probably the egg was deposited, following the course of the eye of the bud into the pith, which he had consumed, together with all the heait wood. He had then gone into the chrysalis state, in the scene of his dep-' redations, and was in the perfect state when I found him. I carried the branch to Pro- fessor Peck, who soon ascertained that it was the perfect insect of a wood-eating larva, of which the genus was known, thoughjttiis species was new. I afterwards found others of them, and have no doubt that an,y pa- tient and curious investigator will Jindthem in every diseased limb. To make this examination more easy, I would remark, that you ought to begin be- low, not in the centre of the blasted limb. If an insect should saw off'*a twig eightfeet < below its extremity, it would begin to di^ : first at the top. The hole or space eaters will be found at the root of some bud, and in the centre of the twig. As soon as I knew the cause ofSjihe, dis- ease, I applied the same remedy\which I hid/ done for the white pine eater. I cut toll* all the affected limbs quite close to the main stem, and far below all disease, and burnt 1'bem. I extirpated the'disease.from the tree, and ten years have .suic&jejajp'^ed-~\ Without te^e^aflPear^eev- • 4'- '-- 1 , - .TJhe degrf|;:iteMK»Mi^i saw irtflicte(|;h| M|f' destroy a^fea^oS most statelyM^Sf V\ ** >-« *s> <$&•* F m tKl The reffiltgf limb affeoted»«w tlica^sease eeatei. v -.*i-f, i ^, i j .
