.I"-##I' RAILWAY SOCIETY. At a meeting, held at the chambers of "Messrs Burke and Venables, in Parliament-street, on Satur- day, the 9th instant, at which deputations from dif- ferent rail way companies were present, ttw-followilig resolutions were unanimously adopted — 1. That it appears to this meeting, that the esta- blishment of a society for promoting and encouraging the scientific improvement of railways throughout the United Kingdom, and also for the general protection of the interests ofrailwiy proprietors, would be highly desirable. 2. That for carrying into effect such object, Mr Glyn, Mr Sims, Mr C. Russell, Mr Bosanqucnt, Mr Tyndale, Mr Henry Smith, and Mr Dicey, be a com- mittee, with power to add to their number, and that, they be requested to frame such preliminary rules and regulations, for the purpose, as may seem to them: desirable. 3. That such committee have also power to elect such persons, being railway proprietors or parties con- nected with, or interested in railways, ns they may think fit, to be members of the above society. At the close of the meeting, the various persons present enrolled their names as the first members of the society. ..<If, COAL FORMATION IN FRANCE.—From M. Boubée's: inspection of the coal formation of the centre of France, it appears, that it may be divided into three distinct groups, and altogether corresponding to the entire period of transition earths, and not, according to the general opinion, only to the upper layer of these earths. These deposits, in consequence of some- remarkable casualties, show three very distinct periods of dislocation in central France, all three very ancient; no other great lifting up of the soil having taken ptaco posterior to the formation of the coal. These ancient dislocations, although very violent, and of great ex- tent, have not, however, produced on the settled rocks- any sensible alteration, or any of those modifications now admitted by many geologists. The agriculturist enforces his arguments by an appeal to experience—the manufacturer reliesi on expectations whioh are little better than con- jectural. SAGO As FOOD FOR HORSES.-We some time gave to the public the result of our inquiries as to the- article of sago as food for horses; we now lay before our readers a letter from a gentleman, whom we con- sider as of first-rate authority-one whose opinion is of some consequence, eifcber on the turf or stable. economy; it is as follows, and we give it at fulli length:— Edinburgh, Dee. 28, 1838.—Mr Baildon, Sir, In answer to your inquiries to me, as to the resu it of my feeding horses, I have now, and have had for some time past, twenty-nine horses feeding with sago twice a day. or altogether on sago-that is to say, without any oats. I find that these horses stand their work as well, if not better, than when fed on the. best oats, and illy saving cannot be estimated at less than 25 per cent. in favour of the sago. I have, out of this num- her of horses, two which do not take it as well as the others, which are very fond of it. I conceive sago is; peculiarly suitable as food for liunte", in the propor- tion of one feed a day. Gruel made from it, in the- proportion of one pound of sago to three gallons of water, will be found, I should thitdk, a most valuable- restorative to hunters after a s;c-vefe (liy in the field.. The best way to make this, is to take a quantity of the sago prepared in the ordinary way, and dilute it with warm water to the necessary extent, or, if the- sago is more conveniently carried by the groom dry,. one pound can be softened with five pounds of boiling, water, and then diluted with the necessarv qu;iii,it)-f of water. I am satisfied that if sago can be suppliierl in sufficient quantity to be sold at the present modeKfiit^t? price, it must always rank high as an IIIticll 01: IbOíd for horses. You aro at liberty to make what usa-you please of this letter. 1 a in. Sir, your -obedient- servadi, -Edinburgh Weekly Journey, "ISAAC SCOTT. FRANCO ENGLlSH.- A curious specimen of this occurred the other d'^y. A French geutlemec, res- cued from a rluckmr, in the Thames, and taken to an adjacent tavern, was vised to drink a tumhler of very hot hrii, -dy and water, and thus addressed the waiter, wlia .w;s mixing it:—"Sir, I shall thank you not to mak e it a fortnight." A fortnight," replied. Joe, "b'.id't you better take it directly?" Oll., yes," S aid monsieur, "directly to be sure, but not a- fortni ght—not two week." F iHNTEn's PnoVEnBs.—Never inquire thou of the- editor for the news, for behold it is his duty at the- appointed time to give it unto thee without asking. When thou dost write for his paper, never say unto' him, What tbinkest thou of my piece?" for it may- be that the tfuth may offend thee. It is not fit that thou shouldst ask him who is the author of an article,, for his duty requires him to keep such things to him- self. Wiwii thou dost enter into a printing.oflices. have a care unto thyself that thou dost not touch the type, for thou inayest cause the printer much trollblc-. Look thou not at the copy which is in the hands of the- compositors, for that is not meet in the sight of the- piinter. Neither examine thou the pr >of sheet, for it is not ready to meet thine eye, that thou mayest understand it. Prefer the paper of thy coutity to any, other, and subscribe immediately for it, and pay for it in advance; and it shall bs will with thee and thy liUla ones.
