The Value of One Square Mil in Vir ! ginia. ' '"' Mclimonil i.,:rra- says: imond l:ni'itir says: ( )ie - "jiiaie mile in the city of NewJYork, oven I calculating it al Sliin.liiMl per ncro, which is much more thuli it would hring, t-xiept in favorite loctilities, would ho worth !sh l t ii m i.i ii a i, and yet ti c ran lind several IocjI. iti, - in tho mountains of Virginia, which are in reality, l.tr more valunhle. . 'tie of : the.-e may he found hetween Smyth and : Washington counties, on the north fork ! of lie- lloh-t mid is known as K'dtville, 'l''''-- Tl'u1 J''estn. ( ne 'l''Uv nnlo w.thm tho circuuilerein e ol the salt ha-in, inchidmg al,,. tho gypsum formation within tho same urea, wo can show hy close cadcuhUio,,-, to ho worth not only more than one -unrc mile in the ''" 'f N'-' Vork, hut more than the 'n city. The .-alt rock within this square mile ranges from seventy to one hundieJ feet in thickness, which would yield u net ton, til- forty hushels of .-alt to every solid yard it contains, or over three thousand mil lions of hushels ! which, when manufactu re I, is worth from forty to (illy cents a hti-hcl. Hut, iirt-sitmini: it to he worth twenty cents per Lushcl in the ground, and we have six hundred millions of dol lars, to which we must add two hundred and til'ty millions of tons of plaster within the same space, worth with the ground a kout one dollar per ton, making a total of eight hundred and lifty million dollars New York property is valued at seven hundred and fifty million dollars. In another place we estimated the value of this mineral deposit at only twonty'eight hundred million hush, salt, without ref erence to the plaster or the land improve ments. Put the present one we make ns a hoa.-t against any thing that tho world can produce, and, of course, have not al lowed any "contingencies in our calcula tions. The oho sipiaro mile, idhidod lo a- hove contains uhout all tho salt, hut not one tenth iiart of the l.laster. The estate contains uhout ten thousand acres. We migh also choose a square railo on tho iron mountains of Alleghany County, which, when properly developed, would he worth more than ull the farms in Vir ginia: or we might choose a square mile f.f the lead property at the Old 'Yityne Lead Mines, and, only estimating it ac cording to the yield up to the present ! time, at a moderate profit in tho ground, and our ligures w ould run into millions. SINGULAR INCIPFNT. The Havana I'rin:n notices a rcmarka- hie incident as one of the results of the shock from the explosion ; no less than the restoration to reason of u lady of that r'!.v wnf n!, oiitiroly lost her min l.some six moths ngo, from a severe and protract ed spell of sickness. During the whole of that period she did not recognize any one, not even her parerts nnd other near rela tives. When the explosion took place she. was instantly thrown into violent pa roxysms, which the family considered ns an indication of tho speedy approach of death. The paroxysms gradually suhsided and all were rejoiced to find her situation Unite the reverso of what was expected : her :eason was entirely restored! This case presents an interesting iiuc.stion for our medical philosophers. CjJ"A lady once conulled Dictor John-oil on the degree of turpitude to he at. ached to her son's rohhing an orchard. 'Madame," said Johnson, "it nil depends upon the weight of the hny. I rotneniLcr my school mute David Ciarrick who wn always a littlo fellow rohhin.,' ten or a dozen orchards with impunity; hut the (list time I climhed up an npple troe for I was always a heavy boy.thehough broke with me, and it was culled a judgement. I suppose Hut is w hy justice is represent- - U'Hh apairofcs!" 'l'n k 1'lmai k Tr.Mi-f.it No trait of char actor is more vahuiMc in n female, I han the poses, ion of a swvot temper. Home can never he made happy w ithout il : il is like, tlio the (lower that spring up in our piithwoy. reviving mid eeehcing u-. I.e. it niitn go liome wearied and worn out hy the toils of the day, mid how soothing, is a word dictated hy a good disposition ! It is sunshine falling upon the heart. He is happy and the cares of life are forgotten. A sweet temper has a soolhing intlllelice over the iniiids of the whole family. When it is found in the wife mid mother, you ohserve kindness mid love predominating over the natunl feeliiigs of a had heart. Smiles, kind words and looks character ize the children, und peace ant! love dwel ling there. Study then to aeipiire a .-vei t temper. His more vuhiahh; than pld. it captivates more than heauty, and to the class of life retains all its hower. A MELANCHOLY r.ANtjUI'.T. Tho t'ollowing touching" tmd tugjji .stive incident, is sadly illustrative)!' the uncer tainty of life, or rather'the eertainty of death, and of: Is inexorahle disregard of all the ties w hich hind frail mortality to an earthly existence. A Cincinnati paper notices the solitary la-t haniiiet of a "l ist man's" t luh in that city. In the cholera heason ol lifa'2, sev en gentlemen agreed to met annually ami dine once together, as long as they lived, a hottl-- of 'vine to he sealed mid drank in meiiiorinm hy the last survivor. The lirst le-uniou was held on the Cth of Octuher, Is3ll, and on the (it h of i ictohor, l'-'i.'k l'r. Vattier, sole survivor of the seven, drank from the Lottie and pledged the six dead friends, whose empty eliitir- and empty plates were his only society ut the lust melancholy feast. The Beli.s of Moscow. Payard Taylor, in an excedingly interesting letter from Moscow, gives an aeeountof the great hells of that city the largest and most costly in the world. The Russians have a pe culiar lHTtrhmn for large hells. The larg est among them, which is on the Tower of tlie'Kermlin, w as cast hy order of the Lin press Anne, in 1730, and weighs one hun dred nnd twenty tons. It is twenty two feet high, and twenty one in diameter at the bottom. It cost olio million and a half of dollars. There isnnother hell near it which weiiihs nxtv-lour tons, it iukcs three men to rln its tongue. It is only rung 'A limes a year, then ull the hells nrc silent. It is said the vihration ot the air is like the simultaneous discharge of a hundred cannons. Bi n in ii r n it -: Election Anecdotes.

Among the most amusing that we have met with laetly, is related of a respectahl gentleman in Windsor county, Vermont w ho some years ngo, had an amLition to represent liis native tilwn in the State Legislature. Though u mini of good nor. al charueter, and in every way ipialilied to fill the office he sought, ho happened, us Aunt Peggy used to sny, to have "a gri ut many winning ways to make folks hute him," and was, in fact, the most unpopu lar man in the town. doing to 'Sitiiire X. an influential man who happened to he friendly to him, he laid his ease Lcfore him, and nskod hia influence ; saying that he didn't expect help without paying for it, and declaring that if he could get X's influence lie was sure to he elected. The 'Siiuirc "put in his host jumps" for his man ; hut when the votes were counted, another man was declared elected. The disappointed 'candidate culled out to know how the vote stood, nnd learned that he had pot just three votes! "Put I don't understand it," said he, turning to the 'Situiro with a chop fallen countenace. "Nor I either," said the 'Squire, "I put in one vote ; you put in nnother ; Put who the deuce put in th. third is more than I cm. imagine ! Put who tvou'd not desire ,o possess such a genial temper ns Mr. .Limes A. Jones of Arkansas, who ran as an indepen dent candi atefor Congress, nnd was de feated hy uhout seven thousand majority. Mr. Joues is the editor or the Otm.-A :hi Ifrralt, and discusses his defeat in his pa per in a manner that should at least enti tle him tn the credit of taking it coolly . Hear him : nr.rEATr.n, or it salt river, "Wo i nve." .'f.i:7't'. ".Vol in min phi. ul 1 mu ll pxatn; lo bo." fym We that is to say, James . Jones, ed itoroflho Ouachita II,rtiil, und Into can didate for Congress are ingloriously de feated. To use a classical and entirely or iginal expression, "we have met the ene my and we are thciis." Wo evidently cast our pearls hefore sw ine. We mag nm.inioiisly, and at a considerahlo Kncri liee of our habitual self respect, offered it, servo a people who Inul no appreciation of the ottering. We cant help it. Wo did n't make the people, and are not under contract lo supply them with brains. If they were w ilfully blind to our merit, the fault is theirs. If they are opposed to re ceiving individually one hundred and fifty acres of land a piece, they have a perfect right to reject it they ought to know w hether or not they deserve it. If they ilon t want the rights ol the south pcr mrr,,l inviolate" why, they may havo them iH-kkd for all wo care. At an enormous expense ofsixten dol lars and thirty-two cents, wo printed a multitude of circulars, sufficient, we thought to elect any man, tvith which wj Hooded this congressional district, and a hu ge portion of the Cherokee nation. Wo w rote to our friends, and to some who were not our friends, to rally to our sup port. Put they d'.Pnt rally. Wo then coiiiiealcd oui'self us well as wo could at home, refusing positively t o extend our ac quaintance, or to see more ot the public than the public did of us. With these l eciiutions mc deemed success certain. A great many persons wrote us that we houhl be elected, we should have all over whelming vote ; they were iiot deceived I was overwhelming. Many credulous K-rsf.ns told us thatjwe should he. elected', we listened lo (hem nd were deceived Put w e forgive (Item, for (hey made us feci comfortable for u while ; and all earthly iappines is transitory. We shall never iceoino a candidate again without consult ing somebody on tho subject first, and 4 ertal.iing whrther they do or do not de sire us to run ; for we are satisfied that it is folly to be a candidate unlesB somebody Iocs want you to run, and will vote "or you on the strength of that desire. We are not without consolation. We ire not the only candtdato that was de feated. There arc numbers in as bad a fix as oiirself. And besides, greater men than we claim to be, have been as badly beaten. Among our numerous friends, ex Gov ernor Drew is entitled to our warmest ac knowledgements. Ilisintention, doubtless was to assist us in beating Rust, hy proj curing a largo and influentiari majority of the Democratic party to vote for him. With this object in view, he mado a hril iant canvass, ending in rio less a hriliant failure. Put, notwithstanding he carried off a considerable portion of our vote, wc honor him for his laudable intentions.. Hereafter he has hut to command us, and we will obey if it suits us to do so. To the fifteen patriotic nnd chivalrous voters, who cast their sull'rages in Tike county, we beg leave to tender our sincere nnd unfeigned gratitude. Wc owe then, a debt that will be diHicult to repay. A a slight evidence of our appreciation and lasting regard, we propose that if they will forward us a list of their names, wo will send them the lln-nhl for life nt tho usua' price, three dollars per nnntim, lrrtfrbihr- in advance. In conclusion, we desire permission to reiiinik, that the small experiment w have ju-t made is eminently satisfactory. Whatever aspirations we may havo hat' for glory are entirely suMuod. The pur suit of a son, in congress, under diflicu ties "is ono in- which we havo no detil to re-engage.
