gether with the land in wbinli fim,.
In Russia, the bondage of the peasantry
is even more complete than it is in Den-
marK. i ne nobles own all the land in the
empire, and the peasantry who reside up
on it are transferred with tho estate.
A great majority have only .cottages,
'One portion 4)f .which is occupied "by the
family, while the other is appropriated to
domestic animals. Few, if any, have beds
but sleep upon bare boards, or upon parts
or the immense stoves by which their hou
ses arc warmed. Their food consists or
black bread, cabbage, unci other vegetables;
without lira addition of any butter.
In Poland, the nobles are the proprietors
iof the land, and the peasantry are slaves.
A recent traveller says, "I have travelled
'in every direction, and never saw a wheat
en loaf to the eastward of the Rhine, in any
part of Northern Germany, Poland or Dcrl
anark." The common food of the peasant
ry of Poland, "the working men," is cab

compelled to pay one-tenth of the produce
of their labor to the church, and one-ninth
to the lord whose land they occupy.
Of the people of France, seven and a
half millions do not eat wheat or wheatcn
bread. They live upon barley, rye, buck
wheat, chesnuts and a few potatoes.
The common wages of a hard laborer in
France, is $37 50 for a man, and $18 75
for a woman, annually. The taxes upon
tthem are equal Jo one-fifth of its nett pro
duce. In 1771, there were 700,000 houses in
Ireland. Of those, 113,000 were occupi
ed by paupers and more than 500,000
had no hearth. Tho average wages of a
laborer is from nine and a half to elev
en cents a day.
Among the laboring classes of the indus
trious Scotch, meat, except on Sundays,
is rarely used.
In England, the price of labor varies;
the Notingham .stocking weavers, as sta
ted by them in a public address, after wor
king frem 14 to 10 hours a day, only earn
from four to five shillings a week, and were
obliged to subsist on bread and water, or
potatoes and salt.

London. The following paragraphs,
showing the vast extent and population of
London, are from the lately published work,
entitled the "Great Metropolis."
"The area of the great metropolis is cal
culated to exceed 14,000 square acres. It
is divided into 155 parishes; and the com
puted number of its courts, lanes and alleys,
and rows, is 10,000. The houses are be
lieved to bo 250,000 in number, the rental
of which is 7,000,000 sterling. The
population, 2,000,000!"
"In proceedir along tho great thorough
fares, the stranger is astonished at the vast
.crowds of people be meets. "Whichever
side of tho street he is on, in whatever di-a-cction
lie looks, he sees nothing on the
pavement but a dense mass of human be
ings, not stationary or inactive, but all pro

Tho Washington correspondent of the
Baltimore Patriot, lias (lie following inter
esting statements, in relation to a new meth
od of conveying intelligence. The cxperi
mentis to be first made between New Or
leans and N. York. It is said in the arti
cle below that news can bo carried from
one to tho other of these places in half
an hour!
"I had great pleasure in meeting with
Mr. Robert E. Hudson, of tho Merchant's
News Room, New York; and Mr. Gonon,
formerly of France, but more recently from
Russia, v;ho arc now in this city, making
arrangements for the establishment of a line
of telcsraphs from New York to New Or
leans. Mr. Gonon and his associate. Air.
Servell, have after many years amplication
tc-Hhe subject, invented an important system
of Telegraphs, which casts into the shade
every thing of the samo kind that has ever
yet been attempted. By their admirable
plan, they can communicate every kind of
information, word by wordf and punctuate
the same, without usimr more sicrnals than
words, and with as much rapidity as a
have received the most flattenng'uiii.ou..1
mcnt from those literary and scientific gen
tlemen to whom they have explained the
system! and not a doubt is ascertained that
it rriii accomplish tho purpose of the inven
tors, and realize all that has been anticipa
ted from it. Mr. Gonon assures me that
he will be able to communicate a despatch,
of one hundred words, from New York to
New Orleans, in HALF AN HOUR! and
those who are thoroughly acquainted with
the system confirm his promises. How ele
meutary does every other system appear in
comparison of that which can accomplish
such an object? The imagination is over
powered in contemplating tho consequences
of such an achievement of human ingenui
ty. Distance is annihilated. Thousands
of miles no longer divide us. "We know
on tho instant, as it were, tho actions, the
wishes, the determinations of our fellow-
beings of other states. Fortunate it is that
wo live in an age for whose intellectual pro
gress nothing is too ripe!"
Horrible! A young female who was
servant at an inn near the custom house, at
Copenhagen, was lately torn to pieces by
some ferocious dogs kept at tho station.
Tho animals had been let loose in tho night
and having got over a wooden paling into
tho yaru ot the inn, killed tho poor girl be
fore any one could come to her assistance.
Her body was mo3t frightfully mangled.
This is suited to be the third accident of the
same nature that has recently' happened at
Copenhagen. London paper.
Single Blessedness. Wo learn from
the Southern Literary Journal, that there
arc now in Charleston, S. C. four thousand
three hundred and twenty unmarried ladies
between tho ages of fifteen and fifty, nine
hundred and seventy-ono from fifteen to
twenty, one thousand five hundred and sev
enty-eight from twenty to thirty, one thou
sand one hundred and twenty from thirty
to lorty, anu six hunureu and tilty-sevcn
from forty to fifty.
Remedy tor influenza. The disorder
being one of obstruction of perspiration,
and of tho customary evacuations, the pro
per remedies, ought to bo administered with
out delay on tho first appearance of the
usual symptoms: the action of tho skin is
to be restored by an early application of
the hot bath, or by the uso ol suiionuc dil
uents, as hot tea, barley broth, treacle pos
set, mulled and spice wine, or that which
is best of all, a basin of warm gruel at bed
time, well sweotened, and containing from
20 to 25 drops of iintimonial wine, and 10
or 12 drops of laudanum. Tho bowels aro

It has been apparent to many of tho reflecting
members of tho Democratic party of tho United
States, that a periodical for the ajvocacy and diffu
sion of their political principles, similar to those in
such active and influential operation in England, is
n desideratum, which it was very important to sup
plya periodical which should unito with tho at
tractions of a Bound nnd vigorous literature, a po
litical character capable of giving efficient support
lo the doctrines and measures of that parly, now
maintained by n largo majority of the people. Dis

country, expending and advocating the Democratic
doctrine through the most able pens thot that party
can furnish, in articles of greater length, more con

a Magazine of Ibis character becomes an instrument
of inapprcciablo value for tho enlightenment and
