The World.— This is the title of a
bow daily paper, the publication of which

day las(. la typographical appearance
k veiy nearly resembles the New York
Tribune. It is printed op good paper and
«lcsr type, and is altogether a handsome
i sheet. |ln politics it is independent. So
far -it has .discussed political - topics with
freedom and in a manner which shows it
to be above more party scheming. It
contains the very latest, intelligence by
telegraph and correspondence from' all
. |»rte -ofthe world. It is edited with that
. ability and boldness which most make it
a successful rival of all the other dailies
in New York. It is a large eight page
paper, yet it is Varnished to .carriers or
news agents at the low price of one penny
a day, or mailed to subscribers at $4 per
annum. The semi-weekly is furnished a|
83 per annum, and the weekly at $2 per
annum. How snob a' paper can be fur
nished at: snob a low price, wp cannot un
derstand, one penny a day; will hardly
furnish the paper on which it is printed.

;On Wednesday last, the House of
reseUtatives at Washington passed the fol
lowing series of resolutions, censuring the
President and Secretary of the Navy.—
These resolutions were reported last year
by the Committee on Public Expenditures,
but were laid over. They were adopted
by a vote of 119 to 60 :

jmrehase of fuel for the Government.
Resolved, That the contract made by
the Secretary of the Navy, under date ■ of
September 23, 1858, with William 0 N.
Swift, for the delivery of live oak timber,
was made in violation of and in a
manner unusual, improper, aifd injurious
to the public service.
Resolved, Thatthe distribution, by the
Secretary of the Navy, of .the patronage
in the navy yards among members Jof
Congress, was destructive of discipline,
corrupting in its influence, and highly in
jurious to the public service. J i:
Resolved, That the President anil Sec
retary of the Navy, by receiving and con
sidering the party relation* of bidders fist
contracts with the United States, and the
effect of awarding contracts upon pending
elections, have set an exampledangerous
to the public safety, and deserving the in
proof of this House.

Secretary of the Navy* of Daniel B, Mar

board of engineers to report upon propo

Fatal DiSEASE.~The Washington

which has been so disastrous to cattle ip
the Extern States has broken out among
the sheep of James Morrison, of Charters
township, in that county, and carried off
a large number On Thursday he lost
about forty, and others were in a dding

disease is very similar to the cholera in its.

A. Valuable Loo.—Recently the ad
ministrators of one Elisha Harris, deceas
ed late a resident of Luzerne county, Pa.,
offered his effects at public sale, among
them an uncouth block of wood, supposed
to be part of a cheese press, and which
was purchased for 15 cents, by one David
M. Hatmacher. On the morning succeed
ing the sale, the purchaser, in a spirit
of inquiry characteristic of the age we live
in, split the block open, when he discov
ered a queer secret door, opened by the
pressure of a long rod, and containing
bonds, notes and other matters, besides
about $2,000 in silver coin. To test the
right of ownership in the treasure, an ani
icable suit for its recovery was instituted
in the Common Pleas of Luzerne county,

A Singular Transformation.— The
following occurrence, reportedby the York
Republican p) have taken place at Stew
artstowin, in that county, on the 20th of
May, belongs to the records of the “ won
derful.”' The story, the truth of which is
vouched for by responsible persons, is as
An Albino, or white negro, living with
Mr, Abel Kirkwood, fell, from the effect
of ah epileptic fit, from the stoop of the
house, where he was sitting on a,chair,
down to the distance of some ten feet.—
There he lay, struggling in his spasms for
the space of half an hour, when he turned
as black as the ace of spades. By Tues
day, the 22d, he was able to walk about
town, and complained of nothing saVe a
few bruises, occasioned by the fall, and the
ebony hue which still shaded his once fair
face.:. Poor fellow, he was quite loath to
part with the resemblance he once core to
a white man, in exchange for his present
shadowy phiz as a black. What is more
remarkable, is that while Ms face is just
as black as Egyptian his hair is
I>eifectly white; thus forming a most beau
tifid and striking contrast. The name of
the man who has undergone this remarka
ble transformation is "Nicholas Billingsly,
and he is about twenty y ears of age. The
affair has quite mystified the good citizens
of Stewarfctown, as doubtless it will all
others who read or hear of it
Wind Wagons. —Andrew Dawson, of

he Went to Pikers Peak mines in twenty
4hyß; Encouraged by this success, 'other
parties in the same town set about the con
struction pf the same kind of wagons and
on Monday a party of eight started out on
the prairies to (ary one which had just been
finished. The wind was blowing a gale at
the time; every thing worked to a charm.
The occupants, gliding swiftly over the
prairies, were delighting themselves with
anticipations of a speedy and comfortable
triu to the mines, when the velocity of the
vehicle created a lively alarin for their
safety. The wagon sped onward before
the driving wind faster and faster, until
the axlettees broke and deposited them
aH on the ground, and in a somewhat
damaged condition from broken heads,
bruised limbs and bodies. The speed of
the machine is said to have been forty
miles per hour. ',

Master General and the Committee on

Considering the countless millipus pf news
papers that are read throughout phr vast
country,,apd the trifling postage on each,
it is believed that the stamping of these
wrappers with a cent stamp by the Gov
ernment, and sale at all post-offices, the
same as stamped envelopes, will furnish
the public with a neat, cheap, convenient,
and much-needed means of enclosing
newspapers, and all transient printed mat
ter, and thereby largely increase the sum
of such matter dispatched by mail, and
thus add to the receipts of the Post Office
Department from a quarter to half a mil

the man was leisurely resting, upon bis
oars, and the pilot, presumed he jwas wait

ride the waves. To bis surprise, however,
as the grafts neared each -other, the man
in the skiff vigorously applied bis oars to
the water, and endeavored to cross the
line of the steamer. The engines were
instantly reversed, but the velocity of the
boat could not be checked in time to pre
