GREAT METKOKTO SHOWER.—A

,KP place on the night of November :
•lior 14th. It will be one of the j
4 stupendous phenomena which it j
Go the lot of man to witness. In j
■ ler that our readers may form some J
aof its sublimity, we append a de- j
.-prion of a similar exhibition during
on this occasion from two o'clock j

stand imposing display of celestial ;

- than 240,00(1 meteors were visible j
ve the horizon of Boston on the j
• .truing of the 16th of November, j
. .. The display was seen all over j
\.jth America. A similar display!
- seen by Humboldt, at Cumana, I
- ;:h America, in 1790. The com par- j
.of the epochs of appearances of j
. ... great showers has led to the dis-
TV that they are periodical, their

!, rby the third part of a century, or j
multiple of this period, and are peri- j

MRS. PARTINGIK>N ON FASHION.—
There is one thing sure, said Mrs. Par
tingdon, the females of the present re
generation are a heap more independ
ent than they used to be. Why I saw
a gal go by to-day that I know belongs
to the historical class of society, with
her dress all tucked up to her knee, her
hair all buzzledup like as if she hadn't
had time to comb for a week, and one
of her grandmother's caps, in an awful
crumpled Condition,on her head. Why
laws, honey, when 1 was a gal, if any
of the fellows come along when I had
my clotljes tucked up that way, and
my head kiverecl with an old white
rag, I would run for dear life, and hide
out of sight. Well, well, the gals then
were innocent, unconfiscatedcreatures;
now they are what the French cail
WRITTEN NOTICES.—We notice occa
sionally a written "Notice" stuck up in
some obscure corner, as if the author is
ashamed to post it in a more conspicu
ous place. Any man who writes his
notices for a public sale, or things of
that kind and gives economy for a rea
son, siIOWS a sad deficiency of knowl
edge. He is "penny wise and pound
foolish," as nobody but old fogies will
stop o read written hand-bills ncw-a
days. If a man has anything to sell and
expects to get its value, he must let it
be known, and Printer's Ink is the on
ly medium. Hand bills neatly execu
ted at the GAZETTE office.
HANGMAN'S DAY.—Governor CUR
TIN, has put an endtothe superstitious
practice too prevalent in this country,
of ordering public executions to t>e
made on Friday, which day of the week
is therefore kept in bad repute, as "Hang
man's Day." A short time ago he or
dered a criminal tobeexecutedonsome
other day, Monday, if we are not mis
taken. He has just issued another death
warrant for an execution in Lycoming
county, naming Tuesday as the day for
the completion of the sentence. If the
Governors of other States would com
bine to discountenance the peculiar
practice of choosing Fridays for execu
tions, in a few years the ancient super
stitions which assigns bad luck to that
day, would bealtogether forgotten.
POISONOUS GASES FROM < >IU LAMPS.
—Many persons who use kerosene or
coal oil lamps are in the habit, when
going to bed or leaving a room for a
short time, of turning the wick down
low, in order to save a trifle of the con
sumption of oil. The consequence is
that the air of the room soon becomes
vitiated by the unconsimied oil vapors,
by the gas produced by combustion, and
also by the minute particles of smoke
and soot which are thrown off. Air
thus poisoned is deadly in its effects,
and the wonder is that more persons
are not immediately and fatally injured
by breathing it. Irritation and infla
mation of the throat and lungs, bead
ache, dizziness and nausea are among
A HAPPYSIGIIT. —The "local" of the
Lynchburg fVeu-s thus describes a happy
sight which he witnessed on Monday in
that city: "We saw a woman yesterday
from the country, promenading Bridge
street, underneath a new spoon-bowl
hat decked with a rooster feather, inside
of a tilting'skeert, before a huge wa
ter fall, having in her mouth acorn-cob
pipe, and lier arms a baby about two
months old. She looked like she felt

THE WEIGHT OP SHEEP.—A rule
prevalent in England for ascertaining
the weight of each dressed quarter will
be one-seventh of the live weight of the
entire sheen; that is, if a live sheep
weighs 1 H pounds, the dressed carcase
will weigh 80 pounds. This ride is said
to he tolerably accurate for fair
order and not very fat.

designs by our most cultivated artists.
Iu short, we can expect a Journal as
eleva'ing in tone and elegant in ap
pearance, as American talent and skill
can produce. A department is especi
ally set apart for the "Little Folks,"

with regard to her untimely death, which indeed,
is their great loss, but her eternal gain. The im
