Curious. Thero nro strong doubt
whether Mr. Harper, the Mayor elect of
New York, ran constitutionally discharge
the duties of his office 83 it is alleged that
lie arrived in this country from England
when about four years of age, and has nev.
rr taken out letters of naturalization.
A strange anomaly it would present, should
it be made to appear that the Native Jlmcr
icens had elevated to offico an unnalurali
zed foreigner
Infanticide in China. From the inves
tigation made by the Rev. David Abeel,
Missionary to China, it appears that pro
bably about one third or nno fourth nf nil
the female children of that country are slain
soon after birth.
A machine by which old woollen rag?
can be. converted into superfine cloth, nt a
.vine of money and labor, has been intio
duced into this country finm England.
The cloth made in this way is rotten, and
liable to tear very easily.
Manufacturing Artificial Marble.
The Fittsbiug Chrnnirle says an individual
lias a mode of manufacturing marble which
t pronounced superior to any oilier artifi
cial itona or marble in use, and will-super
cede the use nf lime mortar in the varied
processes of plastering, will be extensively
used for stucco work, mosaic, statuary,
mantle-pieces; tablo slabs, atmospheric and
hydraulic cement, rnnfing of houses, paving
of streets, &c. It will set or harden in six
hours wlion applied in plastering houses.
It will resist the action uf atmospheric heat,
damp, frost, &c , and is susceptible of a
high polish, and can be manufactured at a
cost little exceeding ordinary lime mortar.
The Magnetic V'elegraph. .The Nation
nl Intelligencer says; "Considerable pro.
tress has been made in the construction of
the Magnetic; Telegraph, the invention of
Professor S. F, B. Morse, upon which a
test experiment i3 being made under the
authority of an act of Congress. Tho line
of conductors is constructed as far on fiom
Washington as to a point on tho lino of thr
v railroad opposite lo the residence of C. H.
Jalvert, Esq (six miles) and the work is
making progrexs at tho rata of about n mill
a day. A trial of it was made on Tuesday
ss ihe cars pasaed Mr. Calveit's by commu
nicatir.g the fact of their passage lo the point
al which the line begins in Washington;
and an answer, acknowledging tho receipt
of tho in lelligence, was received back in
t wo or ihree seconds."
From a table in Hunt's Merchants' Mag
jizino, furnished from the Treasury Depari
ment, it appears tint tho amount of specif
imported into ihe United Statrs in the yeai
1843. was S23 7.I2 031. Of this am'fUH'
817,251.470 were in gold, and SO. 33. 075

Tho reader will probably remember hnu
much capital tho WMl's made in lolO In
illuming t It u endorsement uf clergymen
for lluir candidate. I hey have already ut
tempted the same course in 1843. Rut
they do not find it quite so easy lo procure
tho lufititnce of the clergy in favor uf the
western duellist as they did fur tho moral
and amiable Ilairtson. Still Ihey feel the
importance of securing this influential and
weighty portion ol our citizens, and to pro
euro it has fallen on tho old gamp of pipe
aying, for winch they are so justly distiti
guished. Tho following letter jrom l)t
Gapers, n distinguished minister of the
iVmhodisl churuli i) Hie West will show to
what means they have rosnrled in older to
obtain tho voles of the religious community
for their candidate. It seems that n forged

l)r Capers, and glorifying Henry Clay, lies
been put in circulation Newark Morning

On Satiuday afternoon, the citizens of

kegs of powder, a mass of ruins. In ilt
vicinity were the bodies of four bnys; and
'hough life was not oxtinci, they had lieen
dunned into a state of insensibility, and
were incapable of rendering any account of
dm disaster. Two of them, at least, are
probably fatally injured, nnd it is doubtful
whether more than one of the four can sur
