NetO Alloys oF Metals. A curioits and
valuablo discovery has just been mado in
tho alloy of metals. A manufacturer of
Paris has invented a composition much
less oxidablo than silver, and which will
not melt at less than a heat treble that
which silver will bear; the cost of it is less
than -Id an ounce. Another improvement
13 in s(col; an Englishman, at Brussels has
discovered a mode of casting iron so l'ia it
flows from tho furnace pure steel, hotter
than the best cast steel in England, and al
most equal to that which has undorgo.io the
process of beating. The cost of this alcel
is only a farthing per pound greater than
that of cast iron. Mining Journal.

We have always considered it an unerring
sign of innato vulgarity when we hdar ladies
take particular pains to impress us with an
idea ol their ignorance ot alt domestic mat

encase their delicato hands. Ladies by
some curious kind of hocus-pocus, have got
it into their heads that the best way to catch
a husband is to show him how profoundly
capable they arc of dome nothing for his
comfort. Frightning a piano into fits or
murdering tho king's Frenchiinay be a good
bait for certain kind of fish, but they must
