This difference had the very remarkable effect of retarding the transformation of the latter lo the state of perfect frog. Whilst the tadpoles in the light had undergone this change, several of thn-o in tho dark rntaitied their original form, but had greatly increased in size.

The following is an extract from n work now publishing in England, by Mr. Alison, it being a Himoiy of Europe, during the.French Revolution. "Tho end of thesame year witnessed the resignation of the presidency of the United Stat"cs of America by General Washington, and his voluntary retirement into private life.

The Now Orleans Bee oftlic 23th has the following paragraph on the subject. "Formerly he tested the principle in many experiments made at the charity Hospital, which Mr. (now Dr.) Picton incorporated in a medical treatise for a graduate's diplo ma: and lately he liasprnvedin many caes sent to his own hospital--tho Franklin In firmary. Reasoning on the singular fact that the clad body never had pitted marks and that the exposed members generally had. he inferred that this originated from the want uf light, whoso effects on cutan eous diseases are already known. He sep aratcd one pari of tho body, on which ho allowed lho light to fall day and night, and had the superior members completely sha tied by rugs from its effects. 1 he conse quence was that tho exposed parts were strongly pitted on tho recovery of tho pa. tientu, whilo no marks remained on the parts shaded. This is a happy discovery, and doubly so when the same system being used will change a maltgnantstago into a mild. This has also been fully attested by Dr. Luzen burg's experiments. The learned doctor believes that diseas. es oT the eye might be similarly treated with equal success, and indeed most culan. eous diseases .- as their virulence is chiefly caused by the light the absonco or depriv. ation of which will obviate their malignancy and promote the utility of proper remedies. jACK50NVII.Lt".
