copper pipes, receiving one the other

millimeters, or 2h inches each ; one

With respect to the lenses, they are
all too hig, and have too large a field or
suffice ; it 13 only those of Dollond
ihat conse near perfection, which per*
fection consists m the following parti-
culars : — In order that a convex, a lens,
or a microscopical glass be good, it
ought to be the thinnest and 3ie most
convex possible. In order to combine
these two conditions, in lieu of being
spherical, these classes are lenticular,
tiut is to say, made not of two hemis-
pheres, but of two >ery thin segments
of a sphere ; in a word, in order to be
good, a lens ought to have its field or
sur&ce only the third part, or even the
fourth, if it be possible, of the lenjgth of
its focus. The reason of this is ob-
vious ; more light is lost in proportion
to the thickness of the glass, whilst
the magnifying depends solely on the
convexity of the surfaces, and not upon
their distance from one another.

THE following is the substance of
1 Memoir on Cobwebs. By M. C. L»
Cadet, pharmaciaa.

Spiders have often attracted the cu-
riosity of naturalists, and the attention
of physicians. Tlie former have ad-
vantagpousiy studied the manners of
those insects ; in spite of the repug-
nance which th<y iwiturally Inspire,
means have been K>und to render them
interesting, by describing ^ the' indus-
trioos maimer in which they spread
their webs, to seize their prev) by ob-
Krving the multiplicity and the dispo-
MlioQ of their eyes, ranged upon their
oioiionless heaa, in a geometrical or-
tier, conformable to their wants.—
Their combats, the singularity of their
aaoure, their sensibility for music,
their padence, cveiy thing is admirable
ia the history of spiders.

Physicians have examined how far
tlteir bite is actually venemous, as is
^aerally thcnight ; they have observed
tUt ofltty two spQcies are dangerous,
sad they 'have described the phenomena
prednced hy the bite of the tarantula,
<v of the aviculaire de Cayenne. Swam-
<Mani, Rossi, Baglivi, have left no-
^iiiag unexplofed on this head. We
<tt aow acqiwintiid both ^ith th« af-



fects of this bite« and the means to. re«
medy it.

Cobwebs are considered by many
people as a. kind of vulnerary remedy oc
cure for wounds : in country places,
they often apply them on sligKt cuu of
wounds ; and it appears that this mat«
ter actually accelerates cicatrixation.—
This property was not important enough
to engage chemists to make an analysis
of- cobwebs; but as a febrifuge. virtue
has been attributed to them, superior \a
the quinquina, in some circuiiistances,
I have considered that, in this respect^
they desene a profound investigation.

The following paragraph apjx^ared in
the 13th Number of tTie Journal of Ru-
ral Econorov, (genninal, year 1 2) * * Noiia
avons vu, Q y a plus de trente an8» ua
bon pricur, ice." We have seen, foe
upwards of these thirty years, a worthy
prior, the curate of Batheran, inFranch*
Conite, cure all the fevers ki his parish
and in the neighbouring vilh^s, by the
means of little pills of a very singular .
composition. He used to go into hi^
barn, and to form, by rolling them in his
hands, little pellets of cobwebs, such a»
lie found them ; this remedy he used to
administer, in white wine, w^ithout let-
ting the patients know the nature of it :
he very seldom failed to cure."*.

•* Xl. Marie de St. Uriin, being physi-
cian in chief of the Hotel Dicu, atChar-
tres, had, under his hands, at this hos-
pital, a fever of the most obstinate kind :
in vain had he tried bitters, quinquina,
and all the resources that medicine of-
fers, wlu'ii one of the matrons oftheh«>s-
pital uiuJcrlook the cure, with the cer-
tainty of j)erforining it. Being interro-
gated as to her remedv, she refused to
reveal it. M. Marie cfe St. Ursin, con-
tinued for some daya afterwards his vi-
sits to the patient} at length, the hos-
pital matron having a great consideration
ior the physician, consented to impart to
him the tebricitant remedy. At the
very first taking of it, the access disap-
peared ; tlie physician supposed that the
iinagiuaiioii c^f the patient, his confidence
in a new remedy, and above all, a secret
one, might have suspended the access ^
and he waited, but in vain, for its re-
turn. At length, elated with her suc-
cess, the matron proclaimed herspecifir*
which was the very same as that of the
go<yi prior, the curate of Batheran. The

Start iiot1>ecaiiise my words are mde,

I am of woman bom ;
But 1 have felt ingratitude.

And borne the taunts of scorn.

Like thee I once was blithe and ^y,

Like, thee Fd cheerlysing;
*Midst Ycrdant meads Vd joyous stray,
. To taste the sweets of sprmg.

■ Like thee, my mind with mildness fraught^
Could feel for other*9 woes ;
But fell despair this change hath wroughtj
. And ruin*d my repose.

Like thine, at sad misfortune's tale.
This breast wou'd hearing sigh ;

Nor did my heart or hand e*er fail
The needy to supply.

The gifts of fortune once were mine.

My virtues gain'd renown ;
Ah ! then I bow*d at beauty's shrine.

Nor did the har one frown.

But slander has aspersed my name.

My fondest wi^tnes crossed;
And at the hour I lost my fame.

My vhtues all we're lo^t.

Joyous the mazy dance I led,

Or join*d the mirthful song ;
Time then on swiftest pinions fled.

Nor e'er appeared long.

But fortune, wayward as the moon,

And fickle as the wind,
"Withdrew her shining stores too soon.

Nor plea£ure suy'd behind.

For tho«e with whom I ^har'd each day.
With taunting scorn ^ ithdrew ;

The girl I lov*d grew shy and coy.
And like them prov'd untrue.

Those who with rankling envy pin*d

To see nVy happy state.
Exulting now then* efibrts joined

To work their inward hate.

Foul slander threw her. arrows keien.

With sure and fatal aim ;
They wing'd their treacherous path unseen.

And blasted was my £une.

The timid sta^, with hounds sore pressM,

Will' faee Ills cruel foes;
Despair then steels his coward breast^

He deals forth deadly blows.

Then am I wrong to hate mankind f

They've ruin'd my repose;

With rankling thorns it grows.

Nor peare this breast will ever knowy

Nor ever cca^c it^ pain.

And sleep eternal rei^n.
