Preseryitu; Fruit Without Sofa!!
We have received numerous applieatinnsftn in
formation about the modes operandi of putting up
fruit so as to preserve it in a fresh slate, without
cooking, drying, or packing in sugar. It is a busi•
noes that cannot so wel f t be done in families as in
large manufactories, where everything is arranged
for convenience ; but still with a little experiince
and awful attention every family can sate enough
.of the various fruits of the'season to furnish their
their tables with kgreat delicacy during that per.
'tion of the dear when they can get nothing of the
kind. The whole secret consists in expelling the
air from bottles orcans by heat, and then sealing
up the contents hermetically, if the article+ to be
preserved is peaches, select such as you would for

Kidd, the, Pirate.
On the twelfth of May, one hundred and fifty
three years ago, the celebrated pirate Kidd was
hang in England for the crime of murder. The
following sketch of the life of the pirate, is from
u Valentine's History of the City of New Yorlc:"
The slave trade, being a legitimate pursuit and
followed as a regular branch of foreign trade for
many years, was exceedingly profitable, though
somewhat hazardouA, owing in piratical advenmr
ers, who followed them into their remote trading
places, - and often robbed them of their stores'and
money need in the purchase of negroes. This
practice became so great a pest to the mercantile
interests, that efforts were made by influential mer
chants of New Yolk, to induce the English Minis
try to assist them in fitting out a cruising vessel,
properly armed, to ad against the pirates. Col.
Robert Livingston, of NeW York, en active and in•
fluentiat citizen, brought this matter before the En
glish government; and introduced Captain William
Kehl, of'New Yolk, as an efficient and well known
commander, whose fitness for such service was
well understood in New York. He was a man of
a family, and had resided in New York for several
years. It was proposed to engage in this enter
prise on the footing of a private adventurer, al
though it was also desirable, or some purposes,
that the scheme should receive the official counts
nanze of the government. The King, Lottl Somers,
the-Earl of Romney, the Duke olSlnewsbory, the
Earl of Darold, and Lord Bellamont, joined in mak
ing np the necessary expense of a proper vessel;
Col. Livingston also contributed a proportion. The
profits were to be divided among the owners of the
ship, allowing a liberal share to Kidd.
A commission was issued December 11, 1695,
under the great seal of England, directed u to the
trusty and well-beloved Capt. Williani Kidd, com
mander of the ship Adventurer Galley." He set
sail from Plymouth, in April, 1696, and arrived on
the American coast, where be continued for some•
oecaeicraally entering tlieliarbor of New York,
and visiting his family in the city. He was consid
ered useful in protecting our commerce, for which
he received much applause, and the assembly of
the province voted him the sum of two hundred
and fifty pounds, as a complimentary return for his
Soon after this he lett this vicinity for more ac
tive operanans :on the coast of Africa, and it was
not long ere the astounding news arrived that Kidd
had commenced the trade which he had been en.
gaged to subvert, and had committed several pira
cies. The report of these (acts coming to the pub.
11c knowledge in England, the circumstance was
made the subject of a violent attack upon the gov
ernment by the opposition party, and in the excess
of patty zeal, it was alleged that the King himself,
and those concerned in the expedition, were privy
to the piratical adventure and shared in its profits.
This charge having color of foundation, from the
actual circumstances of the case, made the question
a !inf l ect of slate inqu.ry, and thus the name of
Kidd, thnuph perhaps personally less obnoxious to
the odious characteristics of his profession than
others in history, became, from its awn:ninon with
partizan warfare between the great men of the state
the (ameba among•the pirates of world. The no
blemen engaged in the enterprise underwent the
form of a trial tot their lives, but were acquitted.
The principal scenes of Kidd's piracies were on
the eastern coast of Africa, at Madagascar and the
vicinity, where he captured and titled, as we pave
been informed by history, committing extreme cru
elties upon his captives._ The only porson proven
io have been k fled by him, being a seamen of his
own, named William Moore, whom he acciden•
tally slew, by hitting him with a bucket, for insub
ordination. Kidd having amassed a fortune by his
ciuise, shaped his course homeward believing,
with a mange fatuity, that no -iiihnination of his
depredatiuus hi those remote parts of the world,
had reached the scenes Obis home. He brought
his vessel into Long Island Sounds in the year
1699, and went ashore at Galante'', Island, where
from some undiscoverable motive, he made known
his desire to bury a quantity of treasure on the is.
land, and did acemilingly deposit iu the ground a
considerable quantity of gold, silver and precious
stones, in the presence of Mr Gardiner, but under
strict injunctions of secresty. This deposit consist.

gold, two thousand three hundred and fitly ounces
of silver, seventeen ounces of jewels and precious
stones, sixty-nine precious stoner, fifty bags of so.

England for trial, arid 'indicted for the murder of
William Moore, before spoken of; and being con

they cannot make a venture. One of the methods
has some resemblances of the " little jokers,'' so

What Is the hardest Mode to Die I
To be abut dead is one of the easiest modes to
terminate life; yet, rapid as it is, the body has
leisure to feel and reflect; On the first auempt of
one of the frantic adherents of Spain to assassinate
William, Prince of Orange, who , took the lead in
the revolt of the Netherlands, the brit passed
through the bones of the face and brought him to
the ground. In the instant that preceded loupe
faction, he was able to frame the notion that die
ceiling of the room had fallen and crushed him.
The cannon shot which plunged into the brain
of Charles XII, did not prevent him from seizing
hie sword by the hilt. The idea of an attack, the
necessity for defence, was impressed on, hint by a
blow which we should have supposed too tremea
dons to leave an interval for lhonght. But it by no
means follows that the inflicting of fatal violence
is accomplished by a pang. From What is known
of the first effect of gon shot wounds, it is pos-ible
that the impression is rather storming than acute.—
Unless death be immediate, the pain is as varied
as the nature of the injuries, and these are past
Dot there is nothing singular in the dying sense,
tion ; though Lord Byron remarked the physiolog
ical peculiarity, that the expression is invariably that
of languor, while in death from a stab, the coon.
tenance reflects the traits of natural character, of
gentleness or ferocity, to the last breath.
Some of these cases are of interest, to show , with
what slight disturbance life may en under a mortal
wound, tilt it finally comes to a sodden stop.—A
foot-soldier at Waterloo, pierced by a mu , ket ball
in the hip, begged water of a trooper. who chanced
to possess a canteen of beer. The wounded man
drank, returned his heartiest thanks, mentioned
that his regiment was nearly exterminated, and
having proceeded a dozen yards on his way to •the
rear, tell to the earth, and with one convulsive
movement of his limbs, concluded his career.—

tells the story, " gave scarcely the slightest sign of

Catalonia in Spain, and Tuscany " Vast natural ea•
fines or salt ponds exist on the chores of Patagonia,
