Noktii Carolina. The North Car
oltna papers arc discussing means to draw
foreign emigration to that State. It
seems that of the twenty-one millions of
acres of land in that Stat-;, less than six
millions arc improved; and for these six
snillions there is not one laborer for eve
ry twenty-five acres, whereas a high state
of cultivation would require five times as
limny. There is also a great demand
for common laborers for public works,

For the Jeffcrsonian.
Mr. Printer: Since perusing the brilliant
and richly freighted pages of the Arabian
Nights, I have felt extremely gracious towards
that honorable fraternity, the "Knights of the
Razor." All my professional brethren, I am
lappy to say, have the benefit of this predi
lection, let them come from the truly refined
and polished circles of city life, or be what
arc called in common parlance "niggers from
Egypt." This sentiment has increased by
subsequent reading and observation, and at
the same time, I have beea fully satisfied that
the world but imperfectly understands the
true character of the Barber. What I may
say in the context, in his favor, I hope will
not he esteemed egotism, or in the least allied
to the elTeminacy of mutual adulation. Bar
bcrs have always been favorites with authors,
and I sec no good reason why the term could
not be transposed, and Birbers become an
thers. Bat, this is really not necessary, as he
has been most eloquently vindicated by a long
line of illustrious authors. They are, among
other things, represented as a jovial, light
hearted sej of fellows, full to the brim of fun
and frulic so much so though care invade
the peaceful precincts of their breast, and the
shadows of life fall like a pall upon their path,
they would exclaim in exuberant hilarity,
" Never mind Ihe w cither w lien I he w inds dont blow.''
Perhaps some modern Cervantes, envious
of the renown of his great prototype, will yet
embalm in story the proprietor of " Locklom
on" No. 213, upon the highlands of Scotland
Excuse this personal allusion, and allow me
to add, that a surly or even a reserved Bar
bcr would wound my very acute sense of pro
priety as much as a "good natured Saracen or
a benevolent Ogre." But, however kindly
the Barber has been treated by men of letters,
in all ages, no one can get a real matter o
fact idea of him from books. You may re
irard the B.irber as a Platonic idea, a bcauti
ful vision, an entity, a shadow, an enrapturing
dream, a gorgeous dissolving view, or a mag
nificent moving panorama ; but you will nev
er have what might be termed a tangible ap
preciation of this celebrated " Tonsorial Ar
tist" until you call at his saloon, in the base
ment, of Dit. S. Walton's building, on Broad
street, where he will bury you beneath a pro
fusion of immaculate linen and a snow drift o
lather, take you professionally by the nose
and draw his superbly burnished steel, with
exquisite precision over your ciiin, within a
cricket's hop of the carotid artery.
Moreover, the Barber always looks upon
the bright side of the picture, and consequent
ly, is always happy. Xo clouds darken his
horizon; all is sunshine and peace. Should
time weave the silver tiiread among his raven
locks it docs not mortify his pride, and
should he be bound to the past by the leaden
chains of a sad remembrance, his stern phi
Iosophy would sustain him. Yea, more. Il
he should be called to leave this world which
in reality is but a great shaving shop, where
all are barbers he would bid adieu to his
friends, in the sublime language of the Poet
' Farewell to the hind of the living,
Since my Susanna crossed the sen.''

Arrival of the Niagara,
The Niagara, with one week's later
news from Europe, arrived at Boston, on
Thursday morning. The intelligence
is not very satisfactor' or positive. It is
reported that the Pussians had taken pos
session of some of the Ottoman principali
ties, and that Omar Pasha had summoned
them to evacuate the territories in fifteen
days, and intimated that war would be
commenced at the end of that time if they
A levy of 150,000 additional Turkish
troops had been ordered. The Clegy had
plced 300,000,000 piasters at the Sultan's
disposal. The Russian troops were man
ifesting much activity. All the Ilussian
officials had left Constantinople. The
Sultans had demanded the presence of
the French and English fleets before Con
stantinople. It is thought that France
and England will allow them to fight
tbeir own battles, but if the 'lurks are
defeated will not suffer the Russians to
march on Constantinople. From the bal
ance of Europe, the news is without inter-
FOUR DAYS LATER. The Artio
arrived at New York on Sunday last,
with news four days later. It seems pret
ty evident that war between Russia and
Turkey is inevitable. Whether it will be
confined to those powers, i3 a question of
difficult solution. The English and
French negotiators think they will bo able
so to confine and prevent it from extend
ing to the rest of Europe.
A dispatch from Vienna, of the 17th
ult., says that Gortschakoff, the Russian
Commander in tho Principalities, has re
plied to the Turkish summons to leave
within fifteen days, that he has no autho
rity either to commence hostilities, make
peace, or to evacuate the principalities
and that therefore, he refuses to do ei
ther. The Russian subjects in Turkey have
been placed under the protection of Aus
tria. The Turks allowed neutral flags upon
the Danube up. to the 25th ult., but after
that, they are to be excluded.
When the Czar of Russia heard of the
declaration of war by Turkey, he fell in
to a furious rage, and swore he would
wage a war of cxtirmination with the
Omar Pasha has notified the Russian
Commander to clear out of the Principal
ities before the 25th, or he would com
mence hostilities. It is not supposed that
the fighting will commence on the Danube,
but in Georgia or on the Black Sea.
A battle was fought on the 27th of Sep
tember, between Schamyl and the Rus
sians, after which the Circassians retired
into the mountains. There has been a
heavy loss on both-sides.

These elaborate reports from the Patent

Commissioner Hodges present one is full

Tbcre were 2,G39 applications received
for patents during the year, and 1,020

Probably those 1,020 patents have costs
7,000 examinations. This is the largest
number ever granted in one year, ex

From Dr. Gale's examiner's report we
gather some idea of the value of patents
A man who had made a slight im
provement in straw-cutteis, took a mod
el of his machine through the "Western
States, and after a tour of eicht months
returned with S'10,000. Another had a
machine to thresh and clean grain, which
in fifteen months he sold for SG0,000
third obtained a patent for a printers
ink, refused 850 000 for it, and finally
sold it for 800,000. Those are ordinary
cases; while such inventions as the tele
graph, the planing machine, and the In
dia rubber patents are worth millions
Twenty-seven harvesters, fifteen ploughs,
twenty-six seed-plauters, eight threshing
machines, ten corn hullers and three horse
rakes have been patented during the year
in addition to those now in use.
Six new saw mills, seven shingle split
ters, and twenty-two new planing ma
chines have been patontod within the
Seven new machines that spin, twenty

Examiner Lane's report describes var
ious new electrical inventions. Among
these is an electric whaling apparatus, by
which the whale is literally 'shocked to

alarm which rings bells and displays sig
nals in case of fire, or burglars. Anoth
er is an electric clock, which wa"kes you
up, tells you what time it is, and lights a
lamp for any hour you please.
There is a 'sound gatherer, a sort of
huge oar trumpet, to be placed in front
of a locomotive, bringing to the engineer's
ear all the noises ahead, perfectly dis
tinct, notwithstanding the rattle of train.
There- is an invention that pick up
pins from a confused heap, turns them
all round with their heads up, and sticks
them in papers, in regular row3. An

turning out tho perfect article.

There is a parcor chair patented, that

railway chair that can be tipped back in

Another Patent is for a machine that
counts the passengers in an omnibus and
takes their fares. When a fat man gets
in, it counts two and charges double.
There are a variety of guns patented
that load themselves; a fish line that ad

The truths of the patent office are
stranger than fiction.
There is a machine also by which a

It is played on like a piano. And speak

thousand are made every year in the U
tcd States, giving constant employment
to one thousand nine hundred hands, and

One class of inventions, wc are glad to
sec meet with deserved reprobation.
Whatever may be said of others, the ex
aminers of the patent office are not like
ly to exaggerate, either from ignorance
of design. This is their official judgment
respecting 'burning fluids.'
There is yet much to be accomplished
in perfecting artificial lights; and it is to
be regretted that inventors should be so
genorally satisfied with attempts on their
part to render the use of dangerous ma
terials popular, rather than occupy them
selves with the search after something
that could be used to supply thi3 want,
without endangering the safety of all
who participate in its consumption.
The desire to render tho use of highly
combustible fluids less dangerous than
they can he when burned in lamps of the
ordinary construction, has given riso to
a few improvements, for which patents
' have been granted Thu? far, however
nothing has been presented which can
render these compounds entirely safe ;
while the frequent and dreadful accidents
almost daily recorded from their general
use should prompt the public to the ut
most care, if not to banish tliera trom an
