IMPROVEMENT & APPLICATION
Of Ward's Protractor System of
GJwiRcuIEW T CUTTIJVG.
TIHE publisher announces to his subscribers and to
the trade, that he will issue on or before the 1st
day of October next ensuing, No. 3 of his Application
System, containing the London and Philadelphia Au-
tumn and Winter Fashions for 1836-7. Great care
has been taken to get this publication out in a style of
superior excellence, and as he has cut garments in
strict accordance with the drafts laid down, he can
confidently promise that the application will produce
accuracy in fit, with taste and fashion.
The flattering encomiums daily expressed by skil-
fiul and fashionable Tailors, gives token of a satisfac-
tion particularly gratifying; and the extent of patro-
nage already received, is an incentive to additional
exertion. Letters commendatory, containing orders
for the work, are neither "few nor far between," and
the resident tailors who have subscribed (and they are
many) freely express their conviction of its superiority
over all other systems.
The application of the additional and extra addi-
tional measures have received the decided approval
of all who have tested the principles-this important
feature is clearly explained, and a limited degree of'
application is all that is required of the learner,whilst
any explanation or instruction will be imparted to
subscribers without additional charge.
Instruction in Garment Cutting by the publisher, or
through an agent, will be given; and the subscriber
will be furnished with a set of the work, at Ten Dol-
lars for the first, and Five Dollars per annum on each

Dear Sir: I return you my sincere thanks for your valu-

had the misfortune to be afflicted wilh a disease called Go-
norrlhea. and not understanding it I applied to a Doctor,
who agreed to cure me in a short time, and 1 paid him his
charge. I remained under his treatment: tor the speae of
three months, arl I found ino relief by himr. I then left
him and appliu to a celebrated Doctor-he attended me
for two months and more; I found no relief. I then ap-
plied to three other Doorti,, but all in van. I then gave
ipi all hotIes of ever getting cured. One day I saw Dr.
Hue 's advertisement; I then thought lprope to try him-I
was then at my worst .ateo In c-. han e o wreh-rs I al
a great deal better, and in two weeks more I felt myself
quite recovered; I gained ew strength and fine appetite.
and was able to attend to my business. I would advise all
who suffer under this disease to lose no time to apply te
him,who cat relieve them. I return him my sincere thanks.

About Iwo years ago I caught the secret disease, and not
understanding it I applied to a Doctor, who agreed to cure
me in a short time, and I paid him his charge and remain-
ed under his treatment ,br the space of three months, and
found no relief. I thea left him, and applied to another
Doctor, aud was wider his care for six months, and still
getting worse I was forced to go to the Hospital, and there
remained for a long timune, and got no relief; but fortunate-
ly one of Dr. Hilet's books fell into my hands; I read it,
and was inclined to try him; bu.t my money being run out,
I left the Hostital in a siate of despair, anti went to him
and stbted:niy ease- lie took me in hand to cure nielin three
weeks, which I could not believe; but thanks be to God. in

doubtful of the same, can call on me, and I will satisfy

intention of publishing a Directory for 1837. In thus
openly contradicting this rumor. I will add that I en-
joy advantages in the publication of such a work,
which are not often within the reach others.-There
has been invested almost$2000 in types, which being
set up.for the entire work, any alterations may, in a se-
cond or any subsequent edition be made, in order to
correct such errors as may creep into the first 50 or
100 copies. By this means, a ready access may at all
times be had, and errors corrected, which could not
be the case where the types must be distributed after
striking offeach form. In order that this book and
that announced as shortly to he published by A. Mc-

T HE Directors of the Philadelphia Ice Co." have the
1 satisfaction ot stating to the citizens of Philadelphia
and the ad joining districts, that after nearly three years ot
trials, vexations, and disappointments, they have at length
succeeded in completing their arrangements at "Iceberg
Place," for the preservation of ice. The quantity now put
up (owing to the peculiar instruction of the house) is
flly equal to e00.000 bushels, put up in houses built upon
the old plan.
Of the superior quality of this company's ice, it is hardly
necessary to say any thing, as it is known to the public
that it has all been taken from Fairmount Dam-every
once of it. 6CY None of it trons brick yards, ponds, and
other stagnant pool.
The company will commence the delivery as earlyin the
ensuing month as ice will be wanted; in the mean time ice
in any quantity and at any hour can be had at the office.
The prices will be-
25 cents per week for I peek per day.

There was music in every wave, and its
wild sweet tone came floating down
romn the fluttering pennon above us,like
he sound of a gentle wind mid a cypress
grove, but neither musicnuor beauty had
a spell for the heart of my little friend.
Stalked to her of the glories of the sky
and sea---I pointed to the star on which
she had always loved to look---but her
only answer was a sigh--.and I turned
with her to the bedside of her brother.
I perceived instantly that he was dying.
I'here wvs no visible struggle---but the
ilm was creeping over his eye, and tjie
hectic flush of his cheek was fast deep-
ening into the purple.
I know not whether at first, his sister
perceived the change in his appearance;
she took her seat at his side, pressed his
pale lip to her own, and then as usual,let
her melancholy eye rest fixedly upon his
countenance. Suddenly his looks bright-
ened fora moment and he spoke his sis-
ter's name. She replied with a passion-
ate caress, and looked up to my face as
if to implore encouragement. I knew
that her hopes were but a mockery. A
moment more and a convulsive quiver
passed over the lips of the dying boy---a
slight shudder ran through his frame---
and all was still. The girl knew as if
intuitively, that her brother was dead.
She sat in tearless silence--but I saw that

_ ____ I
THE BEREAVED SISTER.
In the spring of 1824, 1 contracted an
acquaintance in one of the cities of the
south, with a gentleman who had remov-
ed from England to this country, with
two small children, the one a small boy
of ten years, the other a girl of nine years
of age. These children -were the most
lovely I ever saw. The extreme beauty,
their deep and artless affection, and their
frequent bursts of childish and innocent
mirth, made them as dear to me as if I
had been the companion of their infancy.
They were happy in themselves, happy
in each other and in the whole world of
life and nature around them. I had
known the family but a few months,
when my friend was compelled to make
a sudden and unexpected voyage to South
Ameiica. His feelings were embittered
by the thoughts of leaving his mother-
less chiJarlrrns behind him,and as I was on
the point of embarking for Liverpool, I
promised to take them to their friends
The day of our departure was delayed
two weeks. During that period I lived
under the same roof with the little ones
that he had consigned to my charge.
For a few days they were pensive and
made frequent inquiries for their absent
father; but their sorrows were easily as-
suaged, and regret for his absence chan-
ged into pleasant anticipation for his
early return. The ordinary sorrows of
childhood are but dews upon the agle's
plumage, which vanished at the moment
the proud bird springs upwards into the
air to woo the beautiful flashes of the
The day of our departure at last arri-
ved, and we set sail on a quiet afternoon
of summer. It was a scene of beauty,
and my heart fluttered as wildly and joy-
ously as the wing of a young bird in
spring time. It seemed as if man's con-
trol had stopped with the shore, that was
treatingg behind, and left the world of
waters to give back the blue of the upper
skies as purely and neC'-r.'y -o il
,-.t t,vti oauoath of creation. The dis-
ant hills bent their pale blue tops to the
waters, and as the great sun, like the
mageof his Creator, sunk down in the
aest, successive shadows of gold, and
:rimson, and purple, came floating over
he waves, like barques from a fairy
and. My young companions gazed on
he scene steady and silently, when the
ast tints of the dim shore were melting
nto shadow, they took each other's I
lands, and a few natural tears gushed
north as an adieu to the land they had
Soon after sunset, I persuaded my lit-
ti friends to let me lead them to the
yabin, tnd then returned again to look
ipon the hean. In about half an hour, o
s I was stalg musingly apart, I felt
ny hand genlt c dressed, and turning c
Around saw the girl ad stolen alone to
ny side. In a few mtments the even- I
ng star began to twinkle 'irom the edge
fa violet cloud. At first gleamed
t i gleamed 1
aintly,and at intervals, but an jtrame
brightly out and alone lil .e ottifg -e
ipon the brow of the evening. The girl
it my side gazed, upon it, and hailed it
with a tone which told that a th thought of
rapoure was at her heart. She inquired
with sXnplicityand eagerness whether the
fair lan e to which we were going, that
same bright star would be visible, and
seemed to regard it as a another friend,
that was to be vith her in her long and
The first week of our voyage was un-
ittended by anyimportant incident. The
ica, was at times, wild and stormy, but
Gain it would sink to repose,and spread
itself out in beauty to the verge of the
horizon. On the eighth day the boy arose
pale and dejected, and complained ofin-
lisposition. On the following morning
he was confined by a fever to his bed,and
nuch doubt was expressed as to his fate
by the physician of the vessel. I can
lever forget the look ofagony,the look of
utter woe that appeared upon the face of
the little girl when the conviction of her
brother's danger came slowly home up-
on her thoughts. She wept mnot, she
complained not, but hour after hour she
_at by the bed of the young sufferer---an
.mage of grief and beautiful affection.
The boy became daily more feehle and
emaciated. He could not return the
dong and burning kisses of his sister, and
It last a faint heaving of the breast, and
the eloquence of his half closed eye, and
a flush at intervals, upon his wasted
:heek, like the first violet tint of a mor-
ning cloud, were all that told that he
iad not yet passed "the day of nothing-
Fhe twelfth evening of our absence
rom land was the most beautiful I ever
kuew, and I persuaded the gentle girl to
go for a short time upon deck, that her
>wn favorite brow might be fanned by
the twilight breeze. The sun had gone
lown in glory, and the traces of the
blood-red setting, were still visible upon
the western waters. Slowly, but brilli-
antly, the many stars were gathering
hcem together above, and another sky
swelled out its softened beauty beneath,
if it had been an unreal and!terrible vi-
i sion. When the appointed hour was at
Shanl, she came and begged me with a
Stone that seemed less like a human voice
than the low cadence of a disembodied
and melancholy spirit, to go and look
upon her brother and see if he was in-
deed dead. I could not resist her en-
treaties, but went with her to gaze upon
the sleeping dust, to which all the ten-
drils of her life seemed bound. She
passed by the bedside and I Imost deem-
ed that her very existence would pass off
in that long fixed gaze. She moved not
---she spoke not---till the form she loved
was taken away to be let down into the
ocean. Then indeed she arose, and fol-
lowed her brother with a calmness that
might have been from heaven. The bo-
dy sunk slowly and solemnly be-
neath the waves; a few long bright ring-
lets streamed out upon the waters, a sin-
gle white and beautiful gleam came up
between the glancing billows, and all
that had once been joy and beauty van-
During the short residue of our voy-
age, the bereaved sister seemed fading
away and beautiful as a cloud in a sum-
mer zenith. Her heart had lost its com-
munion with nature, and she would look
down into the sea and murmur incoher-
ently of its cold and solitary depths, and
call her brother's name, and then weep
herself into calmness. Soon afterwards
I left her with her friends. I know not
whether she is still a blossom of the
earth, or whether shs has long since gone
to be nurtured in a holier realm. But I
love the memory of that beautiful and
stricken one. Her loveliness, her inno-
cence, and her deep and holy feeling,
still come back to me in their glory and
quietude, like a rainbow on a summer
cloud that has showered and passed off

NEW INVENTION--SUBSTITUTE FOR INK.
Facility and Durability in Writing!
T HE superiority of this fluid over all common inks,
may be summed up under the following heads:
the greater readiness with which it combines with the
paper-the ease with which it flows from and follows
the pen,never clogging it as common ink does-the su-
perior blackness which it invariably acquires, free
from any admixture of brown-the clearness with
which it writes free from that muddiness which is a
prevailing fault of all common inks-its bright and
distinct color when first written, whereas thin inks
are generally pale. Also, its drying so quickly as sel-
dom to require the use of blotting paper;-it has the
property of retaining its fluidity to the last, as well in
the hcuttest as the coldest weather, having no tenden-
cy to become ropy, mouldy, or glutinous; and lastly,
its greater durability. Its quality of resisting the
agents used to obliterate common inks.renders it oar-

ebullitions of frantic rage; with studied misrepre-

subject under deliberation happened to be the Bank
of the United States ; to speak of it, therefore, but
in one way, is unpardonable heresy ; it has a 'ves-
ted right" to absolute impunity; it must be ap-
proached like the Grand Lama, with downcast eyes;
to look upon it boldly, manfully, and steadily, is a
sacrilege never to be pardoned.
In truth, the success of this "great money ma-
chine" with the minority legislature last winter,
had given to it an overweening confidence. It be-
lieved that the battle had been fought and won.
Less wise than the Thane of Cawdor, it troubled
itself with no lingering fears. It thought that

suffer their privileges and rights to be wrested from
them by an accidental minority,in opposition to
their will, to their warning voice, loudly and une-
quivocally uttered, then breaks forth the torrent of
disappointed interest and passion unsuppressed.
The first reply to the letter of Mr. Dallas is the
resuscitation of the panic vocubulary; the system
of personal abuse so lavishly adopted two years ago,
when the coarsest epithets were bestowed without
stint, on every opponent of the Bank, from the
President of the United States to the humblest citi-
zen; when tyrant, demagogue, spy, parasite, and
traitor were echoed from the halls of congress to the
meetings of the remotest townships. It is doubt-
less a sufficient consolation to our distinguished
fellow citizen, amidst this whirlwind of abuse, that
he is undergoing exactly the same treatment with
which every person belonging to the same party
and devoting himself prominently to illustrate and
sustain its principles, has been visited. In the parti-
cular case of Mr. Dallas, indeed, they who can look
back,not a gr at many yeais, on the political history
of Pennsylvania,may find even a closer analogy,by
remembering what his gr at :n 1 good father experi-
enced from men en the same sentiments.and certainly
because he pursued the same inflexible course. Up
to the hour of his death, the late Secretary of the
Treasury was a chosen mark for their slanderous
shafts. During a life spent in this community,
equally irreproachable in its integrity and brilliant
in its intelligence, he too was delineated by the
zealots of faction as a Jacobin, a disorganizer, and
a leveller. His professional capacity was under-
rated, his honorable ambition was denounced as the
selfish interest of office or of gain, and even at the
last the grave scarcely protected his eminence and
virtue from untiring and insatiable malignity. If
the son, sharing the lot of some of the best and most
exalted men of his own days, meets in addition but
the same fate which attended his parent in those
that are past, he may feel proud of the principles
and practices he pursues; at Jal events we may be
allowed to doubt whether the virulence of polite 'al
enemies can for :t moment disturb his serenity or
relax his zeal.
To misrepresent an argument is the next, and
but an easy step, after abusing the writer. The
views of Mr. Dallas, as to a 'iemnedy" against the
Bank charter, ara dcnouncc:d as rank nullification.
Is there a single suggestion of his w!tich! fairly and
candidly considered, will admit ,of such a con-
struction? We challenge his opponents to point it
out, In this letter, the power of a St Ie Conven.
tion is distinctly declared to be limited by the Na-
tional Constitution. Evidently the writer has as-
sumed nothing which he considers in the slightest
degree incompatible with any law, judicial decision,
or constitutional provision of the United States. So
far from it, while he encourages those whom lie
specially addresses, by refering to the recent changes
in the Supreme Court, as having introduced judges
whose views will better harmonize with State
Rights than those of their predecessors, he necessa-
rily inculcates obedience to the decision of that
high tribunal, and looks forward, with confidence
and hope, to the ultimate submission of the ques-
tion to that elevated forum.
To quote the clause in the constitution which
provides that "no State shall pass any law impair-
ing the obligation of contracts;" to assume that the
act of the General Assembly is such a contract, and
to delare that he who advises the State Convention
to annul it, openly sustains a palpable violation of

to them by the firemen of our own city. The pro-
cession, consisting of fire companies, 'the greater
part of whom drew their apparatus, was one of the
largest parades of the kind that we have seen for a
long time. Thle carriages were mn beautiful order,
handsomely adorned with flags and other tasteful
dev ces, and several of them were drawn by horses,
which, with the music, banners, &c. made the
whole affair one of a very showy and attractive cha-
ractcr. The streets through which the procession
missed were thronged with spectators, and in many
of them streawners and flags waved across the way.

their apparatus, elegantly decorated, are a fine look-

CAPT. DIMMOCK, U. S. ARMY.
We have learnt, within a few days past, of an
act of gallantry on thi p-t nf an officer of the army,
which we deem it our duty to give to the public-
especially, as modesty, which is the almost insepa.
rable concomitant of valor, has induced him, hii
his official report, to keep himself entirely out of
Our readers may recollect a skirmish, some
months ago. between a small party of U. S. troops,
and a superior force of Indians,.in the vicinity of
St. Augustine, in which the latter were routed with
considerable lo Brevet Capt. DrIMMOK, then of
1st Artill',y, commanded the Regulars, and, in his
offic;-' report, gave a brief and '.cchnical account of
nce fight. A brother officer, some time afterwards,
accidentally overhearing some soldiers speaking
with admiration of the part Capt. D. bore in the
skirmish, was induced to believe that he had not
done himself justice. His suspicions were increas-
ed when, on asking the particulars from the Cap-
tain, he received a reluctant and guarded account of
the affair. The officer summoned to his presence
the Sergeant who was with the party-there was
no other commissioned officer than Capt. D attach-
ed to it; and learnt the following details:
In the midst of the action, whilst Capt. Dim-
MOCK, on horseback, was directing, and by his
coolness and courage, animating his little party, he
was suddenly, and as if by concert, set upon from
different directions by two Indians of huge stature.
They fired simultaneously and wounded Capt. Dim-
mock in the leg, at the same time bringing down
his horse. Disengaging himself from his horse,
with great activity, he gained his feet in time to
bring down one of his antagonists, as, with fearful
yells, they rushed to take his scalp, thinking their
fire had killed him. On seeing his companion fall,
the other Indian took to flight, but not in time to
save himself. Captain DtMMocK wheeled about,
and, with great coolness, shot him dead with the
other barrel of his fowling piece. In the mean
time, the wounded Indian, though unable to rise,
had seized a gun, but before he could use it, Capt.
Dimmock despatched him with his sword.
We are gratified to be able to state that the casu-
alities of the service have presented an opportunity
of promoting this gallant officer, and that he is now
a full captain in the 2d Artillery.-Fredericsksburg
SINGULAR COINCIDENCE.-We have this mo-
ment conversed with one of our old merchants, who
a short time since received a letter frem a brother-
in-law, whom he has not seen or before heard of
for twenty-six years. iThe letter solicited infor-
mation in regard to a son, who had been absent and
unheard of for thirty years. The gentleman to
whom this letter was addressed, is the uncle of the
absent son. Like the father, he had not heard of
his nephew for about the same period of time.-
Strange as it may seem, the very next day after one
brother-in-law had received the letter from his dis-
tant brother, another letter came from the son, who
lives in Indiana, soliciting information in regard to
his father. So much for the singularity of the co-
incidence, and now for the manner in which it was
brought about. The son who was wise enough to
take a newspaper, (and our paper too, dear read-
ers,) upon opening it one morning, discovered his
uncle's name among the mercantile advertisements.
Immediately the uncle in New York transferred his
brother's letter to his nephew, and his nephew's
letter to his brother, which gave the two all neces-
sary information in regard to themselves, absence,
&c. This story is true to the letter, and were it
necessary, we could give the names of the parties.
The advantage of trying a newspaper, and adver-

yesterday evening, excited a great commotion in
one quarter of Brussels. About eight o'clock the
report of two pistols was heard, proceeding from a
room on the second floor ofa tavern in the Rue de
la Madeline, which had been occupied for four days
by a lady and gentleman, who came from Paris.-
The persons who went into the room on hearing
the report, found two persons dead on the floor,they
having killed themselves with pistols, which they
still held in their hands. It appears from a pass-
port which the young man had about him, that his
name was Vandeputte; a medical student, twenty
year- of age, born and settled at Paris. The name of
the female, who seems to be about twenty or twenty
two years old, is not known. It seems, that since
their arrival at Brussels, these young persons had
repeatedly expressed their intention of committing
suicide. It is said that the immediate cause of their
executing their intention was the arrival at Brussels
yesterday morning of another female, formerly the
mistress of the young man, who had followed him
from Paris. Though the unfortunate young persons
were decently dressed, they had no clothes but
those they wore, and in the young man's pocket
there were only a few centime pieces and a pawn
ticket for a waistcoat of the Monte de Piete at Paris.
The pistols were quite new small brass pistols, one
of which burst in the explosion.-Brussels paper.

McCan into his employment, since which time he
has repeatedly missed sums of money out of his
store, and in order to detect the thief, he some days
back marked different pieces of money, which short-
ly after disappeared; suspicion fell upon McCan,
and a trunk at his lodgings being searched, the
marked money was found in it, and as much more
as made up $30. He was in consequence taken
into custody and brought to the Police Office, where
he confessed that he had r-bsod his employer of

peremptory orders, and that he was afraid to diso-

a man who slept in the same room with the priso-
ner and his father, deposed that frequently after the
boy and his father had retired to sleep, in the same
bed, he heard the father asking his son how much
he had stolen that day,'and praise or blame him ac-
cording to the amount he had stolen. Asthe father
was of course the more guilty of the two, a warrant
was immediately issued to apprehend him, and Mr.
Brink having arrested him yesterday evening, he
was committed to prison. The name of the father
is Francis McCan, and he came here last spring
PIT OF HUMANBONES.-A singular discovery
has been made in Canada, about 11 miles from
Dunds. The earth was seen to be sunk about 15
inches, which caused search to be made; when a
large number of pis, ten or twelve in number, were
found containing Luman bones, and various Indian
implements, evidently showing that not far from two
thousand Indians had beeh huddled into these re-
ceptacles, and buried without the least order or sys-
tem, and in great haste. Large trees were growing
over some of these sepulchres; the kettles, pots, hat-
chets, brass spoons, earthen cups, wampum, &c.,
were rotted and decayed, evidently showing that
they had been a long time buried. One hundred
and twenty-five skeletons were found in one of the
pits, and the developer says that some of the skele-
tons must have belonged to men as much as eight
feet in height. There is probably some Indian tra-
dition which would throw light and interest on this
curious hill of human bones.
From the Cincinnati Whig, Aug. 30.
HIGH-HANDEDn ROBBEn..-On Friday night last
Mr. B. F. WooD of this place was robbed in Madi-
son, Indiana, of $2340 in bank hills, by two villains
who it is believed, had gone in the same boat, and
went on shore at the same time with Mr. W. for the
express purpose of committing the outrage. He had
left the boat but a few minutes, (about 9 o'clock,)
when he was violently assaulted, knocked down
and gagged by the two persons above mentioned.
They then rifled his pockets and made off. They
also took from him a valuable patent lever silver
watch, having the initials of his name on the back
of the inside case. It is supposed that the villains
must have accidentally seen Mr. Wood with the
money, and that they immediately formed the plan
to rob him of it.
A more daring outrage it has seldom fallen to our
lot to record, and we sincerely hope that the perpe-
trators of the nefarious deed may be arrested and
brought to condign punishment.
Mr. Wood offers a reward of $500 for the money
and robbers, or $300 for the money alone.
The robbers were white men, genteely dressed;
one having on a white vest and white hat, and the
other a frock coat and black hat. Most of the mo-
ney was composed of $100 U. S. Bank notes.
It gives us great pleasure to perceive by the Army
and Navy Chronicle, that the gallant and lamented
Major Heilman, who lately fell a sacrifice to his
public duties in Florida, had insured his life to the
amount of six thousand dollars; and has thus left a
little competency to his widow and children, who
would otherwise have been entirely unprovided for.
An unwelcome pr.ment.-While Mrs. Parker, a
widow lady, and her daughter, residing in Twelfth
street, between the 5th and 6th avenues, went to
the pump to get water, about 9 or 10 o'clock on
Monday evening, some person entered her house,
and left a female child, between 5 and 6 years of
age, much emaciated, and apparently half starved,
on the bed. She cannot in any way account for
its being left t'ere, or who by. She brought it to
Col. Mann, at the Alms House, yesterday morning,
and made oath to the facts. The poor little thing
has been taken care of, but it probably cannot live.
[N. Y. Times.
We thought as much.-The Vermont Patriot a
few weeks since, proposed to "tell as many truths
as the opposition did lies, till after the election."
The undertaking was too arduous, and he has given
it up by the following public recantation.
Recantation.-We very inconsiderately promis-
ed a few days ago, to tell as many truths till after
the elections, as the opposition did lies. We can-
not keep within hailing distance, and have aban-
doned the undertaking as entirely impracticable: but
we will still do the best we can."
CURIOUS CaRYSTL.-The crystal of hyaline
quatz, belongidg to M. Lemaire, which created so
much sensation among the Geological Society of
France, on account of its containing both a mon-
ocotyledon and dicotyledon leaf, has been submit-
ted to M. Cordier, the learned professor of Geology
at 'he Jardin des Plantes. Suspecting some trick,
this gentleman suggested that the crystal should he
soaked in water, and if no alteration took place,also
in brandy. M. Lemaire consented, and, in the lat-
ter liquid, the crystal separated into three pieces,be-
tween which the leaf of a lime tree and the feather
of a falcon had been inserted with great ingenuity.
The latter was intended to represent the monoco-
Hiairs and JVails of the Dead.-It sometimes
happens that the hair and nails continue to grow
after death, notwithstanding the decomposition of
the body. The "Journal des Savans" mentions a
female whose hair was found forty-three years after
the interment of the body, to have forced itself
through the chinks of the coffin. The hair crum-
bled on being touched. During the middle ages,
such phenomena caused the dead to be regarded as
sorcerers. Their bodies were dug up, and after
having been burnt, the ashes were scattered to the
ay a Lady, on hearing it said, in a melancholy tone;
the summer's gone.' cc

pass the night with Dundas at Wimbleton. After
supper, the Minister withdrew to his chamber, hav-
ing given his servantdirections to call him at seven
on the ensuing morning. No sooner had he retired,
than Dundas, conscious how much his mind stood in
need of repose, repaired to his apartment, locked the
door, and put the key in his pocket, at the same
time enjoining the valet on no consideration to dis-
turb his master, but allow him to sleep as long as
nature required. It is a truth that Pitt neither a-
woke, nor called any person, till half-past four in
the afternoon of the following day; when Dundas
entering his room, together with his servant, found
him still in so deep a sleep that it became necessary
to shake him in order to awake him. He slept un-
interruptedly during more than sixteen hours.
AFFECTATrON OF UsiNO FOREIGN z WORDS.-
There is something approaching to affectation in the
frequent use of French words, which would seem
indicative of a desire to appear learned,and is there-
fore more liable- to criticism. For our own parts
we like good honest English, and think that, if
grammatically written, it is amply sufficient for the
expression of our thoughts. To our unsophisticated
ears "nosegay" sounds quite as pretty as even "bo-
quet," especially when pronounced by those unac-
quainted with the French language.
It is not long since we heard a very worthy and
clever fellow introduce the words "hors de combat"
into his conversation, giving them, as nearly as we
can write it, the pronunciation of haure dee cum-
batt, which certainly was not quite so euphonious
as the simple expression "disabled," which, as the
words were applied, would have conveyed the same
meaning. The worlds "eclat" and "debut," pro-
nounced in the English manner, sometimes come
full but upon our sense of hearing with a startling
effect, and although somewhat difficult of literal
translation, had perhaps better be dispensed with.-

The Three Days at Paris-Great complaints
were made by die whole of the Parisian press be-
cause one of the chief attractions of the scene-the t
review of the National Guard-was omitted by an ,
order from government. A Paris correspondent of (
the London Times, writing from Paris July 30,
gives the following picture of the manner of cele-
brating the three days, and an interesting descrip-
tion of the famous triumphal arch at the Barriere
S The first of the three days is not marked by any
general rejoicing. Sixteen young persons,to whom
the city of Paris presents small portions (aboutl 20
each) are then publicly married. This cannot,how-
ever, be called a gala day, it is rather one of the
preparations for the festivities of the 28th and 29th.
The only day in fact of unalloyed amusement is the
last; for the 28th,though kept as a holiday, and con-
sequently spent in great part in merry-making, is
nevertheless consecrated by the government to the
memory of those who met death fighting in 1830.
Over the different spots where they fell and lie buri-
ed, high quadrangular scaffoldings, covered with
black cloth, and decorated with tri-colored flags,
were erected, and a similar investment was given to
the churches where the funeral service was perform-
ed. In the chapelelonging to the Hotel des Inva-
lides, funeral service was celebrated in memory of
the victims of Fieschi's crime. This solemnity was
oduldrl. Ly a. great number of Peers and Deputies,
by all the Ministers, and by deputations from several
The 29th, the great day of rejoicing, was usher-
ed in by a discharge of artillery. It had been ar-
ranged that the triumphal arch at the Barriere de
I'Etoile should on this day be thrown open, and the
sculptures on it exposed to public view. This,then,
was the chief point of attraction, and during the
whole day the population flowed towards it from all
quarters in continual streams. The opening of the
arch was not distinguished by any grand solemnity.
Pains had, however, been taken to make the imme-
diate neighborhood as lively as gaudy decorations
could render it. The arch itself is a magnificent
monument. It is of extraordinary dimensions and
possesses great architectural beauty. It is, more-
over, exceedingly well placed, occupying the ex-
tremity of a gradually ascending road, running from
the palace and gardens of the Tuilleries through the
Champs Elyses. This arch was first commenced
in 1806, by the eminent architect Chalgrin; but
since that period various artists have assisted in its
formation. Intended by Napoleon to celebrate the
victories of the warriors of the revolution, itwas
afterwards destined to commemorate the Duke of
Angouleme's exploits in Spain. Itis now defini-
tively consecrated tethe triumphs of the Republic
and the Empire. The foundation is of great depth
and solidity. The height of the monument is 152
feet (French) its breadth 137 feet, and in depth
68 feet. The principal arch is 91 feet high, and
45 feet broad. There is a smaller arch or arcade
,.ui transversely through the monument. On all
sides there are bas-relief, some representing scenes
in the French history, and others merely of an al-
legorical kind. These last are cut in very strong
relief; the figures are of a colossal size, and the
grouping displays great skill in design. Almost
every stone of the structure not occupied by an orna-
ment, is marked with the name of a hero or a con-
quest. The expense of erecting and completing
this monument has not fallen short of 400,000.
On the morning of the 29th its summit was decked
with a vast quantity oftri-colored flags, which re-
mained all the day waving in the air. So great in-
deed was tne number of flags fixed on the top, that
their rustling in the wind, which began to blow
with great force, resembled the noise of distant
thunder. About two o'clock four military bands
were stationed round the arch, and played for some
time in succession the '.Marseilloise' hymn."
ANECDOTE-A FACT.-At a baptism in the wes-
tern part of the state, a few weeks since, a girl of a
shy disposition, about to be immersed,very naturally
resisted the attempts of the minister to lead her into
the water, and after a short struggle began to cry
with great violence. At this moment, while a crowd
of spectators were anxiously watching the result, a
younger brother of the girl stepped up to her and
exclaimed in an undertone, Don't be scared Sal,
they're only in fun !"-Dedham Patriot.
Sir Walter Scott, in one of his letters, lately
brought to light, alluding to his fondness for plant-
ing and agriculture, playfully says, "I promise you
my oaks will outlast my laurels; and I pique my-
self more on my compositions for manure, than on
any other compositions whatsoever, to which I was
The vast region recently organized into a distinct
territorial government, under the appellation of
Ouisconsin Territory, from its extent, geographical
location, and its inexhaustable mineral resources,
together with the great tide of emigration flowing
within its borders, cannot fail to attract the atten-
tion of every citizen of the Union. It extends about
550 miles from East to West, and has in breadth
from North to South, about 400, containing an area
of 100,000 square miles. A glance at the map will
show its commanding attitude, and the great faci-
lities of communication between it and the most im-
portant points of the U. States and the Canadian
Provinces. Stretching along Lake Superior and
the British fur possessions on the North, with the
State of Illinois on the South, while on the West it
has the Mississippi river, and a line running from
its source to the northermost boundary of our coun-
try, and on the East Lake Michigan, the sources
of its increasing wealth and prosperity are soon
made apparent. Its streams affording constant com-
munication with the Mississippi, and with Lakes
Erie and Ontario by Lakes Michigan and Huron,
will bear to any part of our immense'Union,from per-
haps the best mineral region in the world, at least
as to the minerals of copper, lead and iron, the most
inexhaustible supplies.-N. Y. Times.
Pitt's Powsers of Sleep.-However violent might
have been the previous agitation of Pitt's mind, yet
in a very few minutes after he had laid his head
on the pillow, he never failed to sink into profound
repose. So difficult, indeed, was it to awake him,
that his valet usually shook him before he could be
roused from his sleep. One of his private secreta-
ries used to affirm that no intelligence, however dis-
tressing, had power sufficient to break his rest. On
that account, he never locked or bolted the door of
his bed-chamber. I recollect a circumstance which
took place several years subsequent to this time-it
happened in 1796, strongly corroborative of the a-
bove facts. Pitt having been much d':turbed by a
variety of painful political occurrences, drove out to
