It is observable in idnlost every ope rat on of nature, t.iat all fluids j osi.ess stio..g aggie gating pid i eit es ; or in or. er words, j ower ful pto, e..s.t es to accumulate in laige mas ses or tact is so fam.iiur in t. e element of water* la> w ell as the extensive col o.‘ Vapor, ate soon embod.ed into clouds, that it is o.dy l.ecessaiy to make a mere ailus.oa to t..em. Taut ti.c same prin ciple governs in relation to the element if u.ectr.c.ty or file, 1 pieoutuo to le 1.0 .ess true I’.ie natu.fe and p.o, ert.fcs of ti.e sun itsetl j tar as tney aie URt'ersloj i, may be dec met on tins j onit. Tins migitty o!> ect ie instrument of ligut and life, is evidentl' .ii agg.egation of all t..e vital principle if ieat thut belongs to our system; though it i. iow weil understoni. that this “ocean of” is iiOt a mere collection o.’ sue, as ha; een supposed, but is co.met ed with inco.i oivablv large massei of materials of axer v>hd lii.tuit. Fiotn this vast mass, most co .o.tsstreams are incessantly joined iqont.i .ant's. T.iis is weil known ro Le inchspe. • ili.e to the very existence of animal and veg< .ir e hie. I’er.iaji.s, to r, it is as much a j)ii tary law in the government and movement, a’ t.te planets as in t e propaga inn and preservation of animal and vegetabh ix steiice. Without the constant exercise « f tis rrtO t pote t agency, the earth could nc tier b.* cot ed with verdure, nor could tlieit >e support for the name e s *.r;bej of 1 heiugi that inhabit it. As we approach the summer sols’.ice, w< ihd t.te cart.i ptoij e.y ci). r o ed wit i heat ijt it boco.rtt*) much more intense af erward, t co of the great To ounte. act an influence so universally predom hant and stro tg that, were it to continue vo ild soon prove overw ielming, some ener getic reacting principle or agent in the system -vas required, in order to produce a salutary oo.Tectiv#; for it was both a wise and indis cusable provision in nature, to ordain a per naneut law that sliould afford the requisite re ef from its enervating and pernicious pres s ire. Without the help of some active prin cipleof this kind, it were scarcely necessary to say, there could be no duration of life or healtii. Animal and vegetable cx would ,oj:i be extinguished. Every thing, in short, would perish; and in place of tiiat sp'endor md be tuty which every where present tr.em ielves to the enchanted eye, ti e face of crea. ho i would be parched, withered, and cot. sumed. T.iat incomprehensible w‘sdo-n wM< h guides and balances on, of which we arc lestir ed to know nothing but its effects, 'eaves no part of its works imperfect or un (inished. T.iC same creative power has there. n e o daired, taut thesupembunda ice of that element which, without some different dispoa t on, would lead to the annihilation of all life and of every vegetative germ, shall be made the great means of pic erving both. And the mo ewe e iter into an examinat on of tl o c laws and opera! ons of nature which appear so wo iderful, .and whch in many paits aie so inscrutable, the mo e are we astonished and channel in co itemplating their well adjusted harmony and surprising beauty. immense portion of heat which per vades t e carta in the warm season is, from its inherent properties, constantly aggregating in numberless masses of varons dimens'ons, there does not remain in my mind the smal'e it doubt* And what e’se is the e’ectricitv that is pro luced bv art, and made to issue from a macuire but a simple co’lectio i or multipFca t’on of that sustaining or animating principle, drawn suddenly to a point by some strong at tractive property ? To this inherent princple alone. I conceive, mav be traced the origin and existence of those bodies of unusual heat, of which Mr. Jeffer son, in his celebrated Notes on Virginia,” | * “ Going out info the open nir, in the tempera'e anH iin the warm months of the year, we often meet with (Da ?SUW , u , 3!3 & PUEIQSMSE. makes met t o:i, and which ate ro fiequei.tly felt by curious oh?ci vers in tl esumn ei n ontl.s* Tnat enlightened j Inio. opl er did i ot attar] t to explain e ther the cau.*e of tl eir lo niat on» or what le su; po ed to ti eir ultnnate end and use.

They were familiar to me in my early 1 fe, my then being i ear tie foot of a of vciy onsii'eiubie elevation in the eastern pa it of Dutchess county ; and t! c supj osition lollows that ti cy aie familiar to many others. At the same time, I am led to believe, that tho e who in elevated situations, have few oppor tunities of meeting with them; while thooe who are much cmjtloycd in smooth giounds n a valley, will of on remoik them, rOr this, 1 think a very satisfactory icanon may he giv m. Ti er sj Ocific gravity must necessarily ;arry them to the lower giour.ds, even sup osing some of than to have Iren fofmed in ligher parts; ti ouglt I think it very doubtful f any aie pro ’uced in such places. I sup. ose the fact to he, t.iat aggiegation t;d.cs pint o nore easily nnd tnoie rapidly in an o; encoun ry, or at the fool of high hills, where the land s level and well cleared, owing to the inciear jd quantity off eat that is presumed to lie de losited there, and the giea!er equality of the ground. Exjertnco suflir'eiitly shows, tint an intense degree of heat will prevail in a val ley, or over a jiltun, w hen the tops of high ridges are found to be* comparatively r 001. Os the truth of t wt fact that t! etc mysteri ous bod es are most y so ired in low mounds* l Icel thotoughly jer uadtd } ftiras often ns i iavc ascended the side of the ridge iust n en tioued, wh;c!i was in almo t numlicrless ir stances after the sun had disaj peoted, I have no reco!lJect;o:i that 1 ever cr.rrc in contact with or:c of them. They are mo3t commonly felt in a warm evening alter a sulti v day* about sunset, as Mr. Ji'fterson states, or coon alter, and invariably when the Wind is fom the south or south-west. The j ovver of ti e sun being then withdrawn, and ti e air heir g somewhat coo’ed, these warm moving bod es makes more sensible impresss’o.i ujon the observer wiien he meets with t’ cm, 1 have sometimes eneouiitc cd several in the course of an af erroon and early in the evening ; but * mo e fiequei.tly in a rredow than in any other place. They appear to me to be infallible precursors of a thunder-storm, which usually happens on the succeeding af.ernoon or even ing- | From the frequency of these bodes, during the most oppressive part of tie .summer, (and I belove they are seldom met with in any oth er seasou.) 1 am led to believe that if a li c of men were placed across a piece of low* and (level groatid, for the extc: t of a quarter or ihalf a mile, supposing it to have a north and 'south direction, with instructions to notice tie state of the atmosphere, imagining n rerii’c current of air f om t c south, t’ cv would find them ve y nutne ous. It s rottobesuppo cd l ey are til of equal magi itude ; 1 prcst n e they rre of various s>.cs; though it has al ways appe ued to me. that tho e wdiich seemed largest, seemed aLo to co..tJn the highest bod e® of wanri nr, which pa®?inirby us in*woorthro<? ppcondr, do not afford tin eto the Dios* ®cn? 1!e ther m"rnc‘er *o ®p.7e their *pmpera s ure. .Tudg'ng from my fee’iog® only, I think 'hey approach the ordinary heat of •heliumim body.
