Avenging an Insult.
On the subject of war William Ladd
remarks that it is declared to revenge an
insult. 'An armed fib ip "approaches one of
equal force, which hoists the flag of the
declared enemy. In both ships the Bi
bles, if the sailors have any, are bundled
up in the hammocks, and stowed away in
the nettings, to stop the enemy’s shot.—
All thought of the holy precepts con tained
in them is suspended. Then their only
thought is to maim, kill, burn, sink, and
destroy.' The chaplains on board each
vessel rcaort to their respective stations,
to pray for victory to the same God, through
the intercession of the same Redeemer.
Broadside after broadside is" poured into
the Contending ships. The scuppers run
with blood. Groans, screams, curses,
blasphemy, are heard above the roar of
cannon and the rattle of musketry. The
ships grapple, timbers - crack, spars are
shivered, the masts fall on the reeling yes
sels, unheeded by the crew, except they
crush some of them to pieces. Their only
object is to thrust their spikes * through
the hearts of their opponents. The victo
ry is achieved, or perhaps both ships sink
to the bottom, carrying down the killed
and wounded, victors and vanquished.—
Or, perhaps, one ship is set on lire, and
the crewi are driven by the flames to the
extreme parts of the vessel. Tfa such in
stances, men have been kuown, as the
vietpry of Trafalgar, to blow out their own
braips, Or jump overboard to prevent their
being burnt alive, or swallow immense
quantities of ardent, spirits, to make them
insensible to (heir sufferings. At length
the fire reaches the magazine; a tremen
dous explosion ensues, and the other ship,
if not destroyed, is covered with mangled
limbs and pieces of the wreck. These an d
their own dead they throw overboard ; and
then indulge in revelling; death, hell, arid
judgment, are mocked; and with joyful
hearts they bear away for home, to boast
of their victory, and tell how many of the
enemy they haVe sent to endless perdition;
and a whole Christian nation gives itself
up to diabolical joy arid rejoicing! Pic
tures of the- battle arc painted and engra
ved rind iscattered round by hundreds ; the

Extraordinary Mesmeric Delu-
According .to the New Orleans jour
nals, a person calling .himself Professor
Hale tried a very curious experiment at
the new concert hall in that city, one eveu
iQg lately. As certain members of this
audience were inclined to be skeptical, the
professor induced a couple of well-known
citizens to go upon the platform, and an
nounced to the spectators that he would
give them unanswerable evidence of his
psychological power. After getting them
into a “ trance state,” he invited them to
make a voyage to California with him;
and by the mere exertion of his will, he
made them experience all the annoyances
and trouble of a long sea trip; caused them
to be shipwrecked; to go to the mines,
make fabulous fortunes, bring their gold
dust to him, and take his checks on a city
bank for the respective amounts. The
subjects took the checks (pieces of a play
bill,) and seem ed ; perfectly contented with
their apocryphal fortunes. But the pro
fessor did not stop there; he slated that
the gentlemen would remain under the il
lusory influence until the following mora
ing, when they would actually present
their supposed checks at the bank, and
invited the audience to come and sec for
themselves.- At ten o’clock on the ap
pointed day, a large crowd hod assembled
in the bank to see the fun, and in came
one of the deluded, with a piece of tatter
ed paper iu his hand. The paying-teller
had beei\ “posted,” and when the mes
merized asked if his “ check” was good,
replied in the affirmative. He even offer
ed to cash it; but the gentleman, still ac
ting by the will of the professor, declared
that he only wanted to know whether it
was all right and would leave the money
on deposit. Scarcely had No. 1 gone from
the bank, when deluded No. 2 rushed in,
and said, very pompously, that he had “ a
check for fifty thousand dollars from Pro
fessor Hale, which he desired to have
cashed.” The teller pretended not to be
able to read the writing, when the holder
read off the regular form (though not a
word was on the paper,) and endorsed it
across the back, as requested. The teller
then observed that the amount was paya
ble in coin, and pointed to a large, empty
specie box, which he said contained fifty
thousand dollars. The mesmerized said
that he would hire a cart to take it away,
and went out for that purpose. On his
return, the teller informed him that he
had just discovered Professor Hale’s ac
count to be overdrawn, and could not
honor the check. No sooner did the de
luded man hear this, than he rushed fran
tically from the bank, entered Concert
Hall, and attempted io stab the Professor
w itha sword-cane. Hale narrowly escaped
bci||g spitted by his assailant, who strug
gle® fiercely with those who held him, and
eaircdUthe Professor a cheat. He was at
last induced to hear Hale’s explanation,
when that gentleman cautiously approach
ed him, and, with a few mesmeric passes,
brought him to himself. Nothing could
exceed the wonder of the entranced individ
ual when he discovered his situation, and '
heard of hia attempt to slay the professor.
He said that he felt like one just aroused
from a deep sleep, and could remember
nothing, from the time when ho ascended
the platform and was mesmerized. The
other subject was soon found, and allowed
to have a will of his own; and both sub
jects pronounced the professor the most
wonderful man in the world.
The Valley farmer saya one of the
most simple and excellent medicines for
any derangement of the stomach of hu
man beings, is finely pulverized, fresh
burnt charcoal. For this purpose it should
be closely corked up in a bottle as soon as
it nas been burnt and ground; a teaspoon
ful taken in a wineglass of water once a
day will frequently be found worth more
than all the quack nostrums with which
the country is flooded.
But pur object was to speak of the
value of charcoal to our domestic
in fattening them. A half pint of*l|pie
ly pulverized and mixed with cornMwd
and water to each animal once or bnes a'
week will be found extremely beneficial,
in aiding digestion and preventing any
derangement of the stomach arising from
overfeeding, as is liable to the case with
that hoggish animal. Besides serving as
a medicine it is also extremely fattening,
either in itself or rendering the food eaten
more available by correcting and stimula
ting the digestive powers. '■

A GhOSt.
The people of Rahway, according to the
Republican , are having a ghost excite
ment-—a spirit being supposed to haunt a
Certain hpuse. The Republican says:—
“ A. big double-fisted fellow, who glories
in fearing neither man nor Satan, went
\one night recently all alone to investigate
the mystery of the apparation, talcing his
gun with him. It was about 11 ©’clock,
and the moon was shining clear and bright
He went to the gate, and after some exer
tion succeeded in forcing it ofcen wide
enough to crowd himself in, owing to the
snow and ice which was around it; but it
soon slammed shut as if some one had
done it io spite. He then went and sat
down on the porch, and after sitting there
a few moments he heard; a great noise in
the bouse like knocking over oh airs and
breaking things in general. This he list
ened to for some time, and then went and
looked around at the side of the house, and
on the pavement, about [three feet from
him, he saw a little thing about a. foot
long; he watched and saw it enlarge, un
til it got to'be about the size of a man,
when he stretched out his arms and there
stood “ Hid Morris,” (so he says) as plain
as ever he saw him in life. He spoke to
the ghost several times, asked it who it
was and what it wanted, telling it that if
it did not speak he would shoot, for he
says he was not , frightened, but thought
perhaps, it was a trick of some one to scare
him. It made no reply, but it stood per
fectly still with its arms extended. At
length he placed his gun. at its heart and
fired. He says it was perfectly still—no
wind blowing at the his face
and eyes were completely filled with smoke;
which blew off in a moment, when the
ghost had disappeared with it. i£e looked
around, but could sec nothing of it, and
then it was the strong man failed him,
and he thought to himsejf:

sold to one dealer in New York city over
48.000 pounds of surplus or box hsney

by his own and neighbors’ bees. In 1839
he sold 22,000, in 1857,8,000, and in 1858,
18.000 pounds. The area occupied by the
