balloon, without further charge, as this company has
been established for the purpose of making money
for the stockholders, and not fur the originators of
this great enterprise.
This is the largest and best developed tract owned
by the Company. As the Directors are welt known
as men of undoubted veracity, and are willing to
conch for the truth of the description, what follows
can be taken as absolutely true.

Influence upon the oil underlying the land as it does
upon the tidewater—it caused the nil to rise In the
Risures of the rocks, to such an extent as to Inun
date the whole tract. It was first called Lana tract,
and having been purchased on Got, some evil die.
pottedVansotit.eplled It the.. Luna tic tract. Aa this
ettreognomen was flk - elfto' damage the proep-'cts
of the:Company, the Directors, at a lull meeting,
changed It to the 11nonshine.
The land on this tract Is heavily timbered, with
Mahogany, R.zewood, Ebony, Sandalwood, Nlght•
hlOOUling Cerens, Century Plants and other rarkties,
suitable for building purposes, and the mautitacture
of hermetically sealed Munt.
Upon this-land, and along the banks of Cheat Riv
er, were found some tine diamonds of the itrel watt r.
The specimen on exhibition at the Mike of t he Com
pany, was picked up on this tract, It la a large and
splendid Jewel, which far exceeds in lustre the fa
mous Kobinoor, or any other diamond since the
great Mogul was cut. The ground was so rich in
precious stone, that the Surveyor whet first laid It,

The moat remarkable do,orery made was that of
an antique copper coin, with heads on both aides ;
also, sorer , loaded dice, marked cants, and lottery
tickets These arc ell-convincing proofs that
Companies must have been known to the remote
ages of antiquity.
This, though a small tract, embracing only 11'1,000.-
000 acres, is worthy of a careful examination of al:
who dt,lre to Invest In the stock of the Compan y.—
The first strike was a lame temn of originators of oil
schemes Raell one had a prospectus containing an
aecunde description of the property, and stating
what percentage per month each Company would
pay from Its start. It it only necessary to :tile that
each proapt,tue was us truthful and correct in even
feature as this ono. It was evident, from their up
peurance, that their only anxiety was to make mon
ey for others without a thought for themselves.—
Ilere also was found a corral list of the incomes of
all persona not connect., with the company.
Immediately succeeding was a vein or Lawyers.—
This was an unfortunate s.rike, and far from profit
able. Upon being landed safely, they claimed that
as they were part of the land, they had a tie in It.—
Our learned legal adviser contended, upon the trial,
that as they bad not been in th>swssion or the
face, or soil, for twenty-one yea.-s, they 11,,d no title ;
and further, that as the vein immediately under them
wa..s brimstone, it was evident that they were more
than half-way down, and should go to the other side,
Our Pe-sident, also of the legal profession, objected,
on the ground that there was enough of the fraterni
ty for the good of the cotnrtinnity, without their
presence Toe Judge decidod in favor of both per
ties, and LlLlViild a compromise. Till 3 Nas done in
the used manner. The attorneys of the company
took five-nisiths, and the other side took tite niotics,
leaving the balance of the property fur the company.

to the patriotism which they found among the peo

Salisbury, trving to reach oar howt n, and we want
you to help us" They invariably responded prompt

their fidelity was concerned, we felt just as safe

Of halt Roman and half Greek noses, which elan
combines phyeical energy with refinement, many
great men have boasted; such were Alexander the
Great, Constantine, King Alfred, Woolsey, Richelieu,
Lorenzo de Medici, Sir Walter Raleigh, Sir
Sydney, and last and greateat in energy and elfeet,
Napoleon Bonaparte. His nephew has also an anal

cogitative as to the tetmination and nostrils.
It is impossible to conceive more bentlftil faces
then those which have the Greek nose; but the
owners are men ol two much refinement to be al
ways energetic and bustling Hence when Napoleo
who was a nasologiat, or nose philosopher, wanted
any work well done, he asked for a man with plenty
of nose. "Strange as it moy appear," he says,
I generally chdse a man with plenty of nose."
Now the Grecian nation never had &superabundance

The opinion that venomous serpents do not eat
the animals they kill by the poison of their fangs,
like many other popular notions, turns out to be an
error. This I know from my own personal obser

particulars are given. My specimens were plead

of the serpent coursing through its veins.
The birds placed in the box were not swallowed
by the rattlesnake, seemingly, as afterward appear
because it would not Wet:father Its Jaws, so as to
be utompared for defense while the human eye
rested upon it. In experimenting on the non•ven

not take their food when any person was present;
but that when alone and secure they would raven

eaten nine birds in a few boom. Profiting by UM
