Armstrong of Newburgh, in purchasing
among other minerals, what he supposed
was a topaz, but which turned out to be a
diamoud, we have taken pains to get the
real facts of the case, and find them to
be there :
Mr. Armstrong, who has, for some
time past devoted much of his leisure
time to minerological pursuits, purchased
a lot or minerals, some months since, o
an Englishman in New York, among
which was supposed to be a topaz. Upon
an examination of these minerals a con
sidcrable timo alter their purchase. Mr,
Armstrong was struck with the close
resemblance of this supposed topaz to the
real diamond, and was led to subject it to
a test or its real qualities. This test con
firmed his hopes, and the opinion of others
acquainted with the subject, was sough
and given in favor of the valuable char
actcr of the gem. Mr. Armstrong has
been offered 500,000 for one half of the
brilliant, but has declined the proposition
Its weight is two and half oz., and if a rca
diamond, its value will be more than $2,

measuses to have the character of the min

believe he has but little doubt but that
scrutiny will result according to his wish

which no vessel can stand for an instant.
You have only, as he asserts, to plant a

dispense with all other means and apnli
