The Bottom of the Sea.
The following description of the bottom of
the sea, is from a recent lecture delivered by
Lieutenant Maury, before the Lowell hist'.
"As to the character of the bottom they left
that to the fancy of the poets and the dreams
of the prisoners. They pictured its bottom as
slimy, scattered _over with wedg6s of gold,
great anchors, heaps of pearls, inestimable
stones, and valued jewels, a thousand wrecks,
and a thousand men that fishes gnawed up."
"But. Brooks' lead tells—Anether tale,. no
wrecks, no anchors, no dead men's bones are
scattered on the bottom of the sea. They are
all buried deep down among the remains of
its'own dead. The bottom of the sea is cover
ed many feet deep with microscopic shells,
whose artificers and tenants have lived,
sported and died at the surface, and whose
remains 'are taken by the current after death,
borne away to the distant regions, and depos
ited at the bottom as lightly and gently as the
frost in its chamber. Everywhere, in every
zone, in the coral sea, in the North Pacific, in
the stormy Atlantic, wherever this admira
ble sounding rod has been, it has brought up
the evidence of death and repose. The shells
are perfect, and though they may .have been
lying there in cold obscurity for ages, yet
their color and their looks are as fresh and as
bright as though the pale hand had never been
"A single quill c►in bring up at one cast
thousands and millionwof these shells, which,
as individuals; the most powerful microscope
alone will recognize. In life they escape our
keenest scrutiny, and it is not therefore, till
we explore the depth of the sea, examine the
bottoin of the ocean, and survey its dead as
they strew it all over many feet thick with
their skeletonsi,' that we can fully realise hew

great-grandson of the founder of this State,
to whom it had been transmitted through
tour-genera+lons. Says the Pennsylvanian :
'The wampum belt is-certainly a great cu

beads are generally white. and, among them
black beads are wrought into devices emble

two figures are rudely formed with heads.

A Desperate Conflict Between a Lion and
. - . Qemsbok.
Pr. Livingston gives a very interesting
seri Rtion of a fight ho had witnessed in Afri
ca between a lion and an antelope. The-Dee
nr and his guides had just e*nergodjrom a
narrow defile between two rocky hills when,
they heard an angry grwl, which they knew:
to be that of the "monarch of the forest." At;
a distance of not more than forty yards in ad
vance Of them, gemsbok attiod at bay, while
a huge, tawny lion was crouched on a rock
platfoxm, above the level plain, evidently med
itating an attack upon the antelope ; only a
space of about twenty feet separated the ani
mals. The lion appeared to be animated with
the greatest fury, the gemsbok was apparent
ly calm and resolute, presenting his well for
tified head to the enemy.
• The lion cautiously changed his position,
descended to the - plain and made a circuit, ob
viously for the purpose of attacking the gems
bok in the rear, but the latter was on the alert
and still turned his- head toward his antago
nist. The inanceuvering lasted for half an
hour, *hen it appeared to the observers that
the gemsbok used a stratagem to induce the
lion to make the assault. The think of the
antelope was fur a moment turned to his.
fierce assailant.' As quick as lightning' the
lion made a spring, but while ho was yet iu
the air, the gemsbok turned his head, ,beading
his neck so as to present oiled his spear-like
horns at the lion's breast.
A terrible laceration was the conserpretice •,
the lion fell back on his haunches and she ed
a ghastly wound in the lower part ofhis neck.
Ile uttered a howl of rage and anguish and
backed off to a distance of fifty yards, - seeming
half disposed to give up the contest, but Wa
fer, fury or revenge onee more impelled him
orward. His , second aiisault was inure furi
ous and headlong ;• ho rushed at the gemsblik
and attempted to leap over the formidable
horns in order to alight On his back. The
gemsbok, still standing on the defensive, ele
vated his head, and speared the lion in his
side, and inflicted what the spectators bailey,
ed to. ho 4tatinortal wound,, tis the horns pene
trated the depth of six or eight inches. Alain
the lion - retreated, groaning and limping in a
manner - which showed 'that he had 'been se
verely hurt; but he soon collected all his en
ergies for another attack. .At the instant of
collision the gemsbok presented a horn so as
to strike the lion immediately between his
two forelegs,.and - so violent was the stroke
that the whole length of the horn was buried
in the.lion's body. For nearly a minute the
two beaks stood metionless; then the gents ,
bolt, slowly backing, withdrew his .hern,and
the lion tottered and fell on his side, his liMbs
quivering in the ;agonies of death. The vie
_made triumphant flourish of
nod trotted off, apparently without having
received the least injaryin the conflict. -
The Last Rat Tale.
A gentleman on the Bay informed us yes
terday that in order to destroy the number of
rats on his premises, he watt in the habit of
placing 11, tempting : : bait in the yard, and On
seeing a g4tod crowd of the "varmin ts" ftrOUTA
it, WuUld shoot them down from a convenient
spot. As the rats began to get shy,-01 the
common baits, he procured a Ilas,lviT Sweet
almond, oil„tutd._ lam a 4:3ih jiole in the
yard, with only the
_mou)h uncorked above
the leveL The rats could not resist the
tempting flavor - Of the oil, so they came with
a s great.rtiSb, and not it few fared badly.
> Yesterday morning the gentleman saw two
patriarchal-looking—yats cogitating - over the
oil flask, how to get ta4 - 61 the luscious ar
_ After examining all-around, one of them
brightened up with an idea. He inserted his
!Ong tail into the oil flask, and when it was
well moistened with the sweet oil, drew it out
and permitted his friend to lick it
On the principle that one good turn de
serves another, rat number two inserted his
dorsal elongation into the 'oil flask, and al
lowed rat ntunber one to enjoy the feast.
This in-tailing yrneess was kept up amicably
fief some time,: al rat number two,who was evt
dently a goinnand„ instead of confining hint=
self to licking his frie»d's candid appendage,
actually began to bite ! "Wherenp m," to
use our, informant's language, "they had a
fight, air, such as has not been equalled since
that of Tom liyer and, Yankei Sullivan".—

Coarbf.—Tlie important question so long be
fore the courts in an equivocal or unsettled'
position, as to the liability of foreign consuls
to be sued in the federal courts of the United
States, was decided on Monday by Chief Jus
tice Nelson, of the United States Circuit Court,
for the first time.—The herald says the ques
tion came up in a claim of Mr. Graham
against Messrs. Meyer & Stucken (the latter
being consul of the kingdom of llanover,) on
a mercantile suit . to set aside bills of sale of
steam vessels to the aggregate value of $400.-
1)00L A motion for a writ of lie &real *ainst
Consul Studien was denied by the Judge,
who states that' this court has jurisdiction to
hear and decide the motion, notwithstanding
the plea of eons - ular privileges. This is the
first time that it has been decided that con
suls can be sued in the federal courts.

When Dees Wool ()fowl
I answer, when it is wanted to cover the
sheep and keep it warm. From the time the
sheep is sheared until the frost comes you cut
see the shape of every gip of the Attars; when
the frost And cold weather comes it grows out
immediately. Now, if you wish fur a helivy
clip feed when the wool is growing. If you
have any extra feedi'theuls the timeto.use it.
'The wool draws very. hard upon the carcass ° ,
and growing out fast, deceives alniost every
farmer. They think their sheep tire - doing
well, when they are growing poor. , I can
make an additipnal pound of wool with, one
bushel of corn, and my sheep will afterwards
winter one bushel of corn easier. Let your -
sheep get poor while the wool is groWing and
you cannot , :reeruit them until next summer.
