INESS.—Moultlinoss is occasioned by the
growth of minute vegetation. -Ink, paste,
leather, and seeds most frequently suffer
by it. A clove will preserve ink ; any
essential oil atuswers equally well. Leath
er may be kept from mould by the same
substances. Thus, Russian leather, whibh
is perfumed with the tar of birch, never
becomes mouldy ; indeed, it prevents it
from occurring iu other bodies. A few
drops of any essential oil will keep books
entirely free from it. For harness, oil of
turpentine is recommended. Alum and
rosin are used to preserve book binder's
paste, but ineffectually ; oil of turpentine
succeeds better ; hut, by small quantities
of oil of peppermint, anise, or cassia, paste
has been preserved for several years. Dr.
Maculloch recommends the addition to the
flour and water of some sugar and
a little corrosive sublimate ; the sugar
keeping it flexible when dry, and the sub
limate preventing it from fermenting and
frotu being attacked by insects. A few
drops of any of the essential oils may be
added to the paste when it is made. It

and this is of great uonstquence when
they are sent to a distance. Of course
moisture must be excluded as much. as
possible, as the oils of °tins prevent only

KrWe annex a summary of the result
of the Presidential election in the several
States, as far as ascertained. The figures
indicate that Dlr. Buchanan has probably
received a majority of the electoral votes,
although largely in a minority of the pop.
ular vote. Fremont has swept the Nor
thern States generally by an enormous tna-
jnriry—losing Pennsylvania and New Je
rsey by the treachery of professed Ameri
cans and the want of a cordial union be-
tweon the opponents of Buchanan. Indi
ana and Illinois arc thought to be lot in
the sniiie way. The balance of the Nor.
them States stand firm, and roll up unpre
cedented majoritio for Fremont and Free
dom. The telegraphic despatches arc
somewhat confused, but indicate the fol
lowing general result
MAINE has gone for Fremont by a.
bout 30 000 majority—there being a gain
of 1700 in 84 towns since September.

PENNSYLVANIA.—We have but few re.

NEW JERSEY.—The Americans and Re

and have elected him. But the Philadelphia
tricksters succeeded in preventing a union on
the Presidency, and the State is thrown to

one entering the stomach, another the breast,

himself up, and before the Mayor juitified the

"Loved not wisely but too well."
On Wednesday last, shortly after the
arrival of the Lexington train, a gentleman
called upon Mr.. M., and requested to
know if such s couple, describing, the pair
in question, were in the house. Being
answered it; the affirmative, he desired to
be conducted, to their apartment, which

and there seated upon, one chair. his legs

him wits daintily arranging Ilia wavy hair.
At atklat sif the apparition whiah thus
burst upon their view, the pair eta rted, and
looked aghast, but as the intrutlor threw
from his breast a revolver. the landlord
placed himself between the parties and
demanded tut explanation. The story
was scent told ; the lady was the wife of
the recent arrival, and eloped ;Mont a
week previouit, from her home in Les ing
tom Ky., whence her husband had tot ed

' tendon of avenging his wounded honor.
In the meantime, the gay Lothario had
sneaked out of his room, and loft the house,
leaving bis guilty partner to bear the &Mut
of the storm alone. For awhile she tried
those unfailing resources of woman, tears
and liriiierics, anti then, while aelinnwl ed.
giog her error, she palliated it by pleading
coldness upon his part, which chilled her
love, and impressed her with the 'belief
that he had ceased to care for her, and how
in despair at the lose of his affection, she

landscape Such ae Milton ur Dante might
imagine—intirgatiie, desolate and myster
iotis ! I have come down from die ileck
with the feelings of a inan who has look.
lid upon a world unfinished by the hand
of its Creator." .
Here is a thrilling - narrative in a differ-
eel vein
Oire fastened at last to the great floe
near the shore. making our harbor in a
ertiek which opened with the changes of
the tide.
imperfect diet of the party was
showing' itself more and more in the de
cline of their inuscolAr power. They
seemed scareuly aware of it ihemseive4,
and referred the difficulty they found in
dragging and pushing to something un
common about the ice and sludge, rather
than to their own weakness. 13nt, as we
endeavored AO renew our labors through
the mooting fog, belied on all sides by
ice fields an distorted and rugged as to de.
iv our efforts to cross them, the truth
seemed to burst upon every one. We
had lost this feeling of hunger, an I were
almost satisfied with our pasty broth and
the large draughts of tea which aceotnp•
soled it. I wit' anxious to send our small
boat, the Eric, across to the {ultimo hill at
Appall, where I knew front the Esqui
maux we should find plenty of birds ; but
the strength of the party was insufficient
to drag her.
"We were sorely disheartened and
conk! only wait for the fog to rise, in the
hope of 130111 C smoother platform than that
which was about us, or some lead that
might secs us the painful labor of trackintr•
I had clim b ed the iceberg ; and there was
nothiug io view except the Dalrymple
Rock, with its red brassy face towering
in die' unknown' distance. • But I hardly
got back to my boat, before a gale struck
us front the north-west, and a floe, taking
up a tongue of ice about a mile to the
north of us, bcgan to 'swing upon it like a
pivit, am' close slowly in upon our nar•
row resting place.
"At final our own fine was filen driven
before the wind; but in a little while it en
countered the stationary ice at the foot of
the very rock itself. Ott the instant the
wildest imaginable ruin rose around us.—
Toe men sprang mechanically each nue to
his flt3iloll, bearing back the boats and
stores ;-but I gave up for the moment all
hope of escape. It was not a nip. suc h
as is familiar to Arctic navigators; but the
whole platform where we stood, and for
hundreds of yards on every side of us,
crumbled and crushed and tossed itself
madly under the pressure. Ido not be.
lieve that of our little body of men, all of
them disciplined in ittals,, able to [meow
urn danger while combatting it.s- I do not
believe there is one who this day eau ex
plain how or why—hardly when, in fact—
we found ourselves afloat.
..We, only know that in the midst of a
clamor utterly indescribable, through
which the braying of a thousand trinupets
could 110 more have been heard than ilia
voice of a man, we were shaken and rule •
ad and whirled and let down again in a
swelling waste of broken hammock*, and,
as the men grasped their boat honks in
the stillness that followed, the boats ebbed
II way in a tumultuous akreed of ice .and
snow and water.
"We were born along in this manner
as long as the unbroken remnant of the in.
shore floe cnn filmed revolving, utterly
powerless, and catching a glimpse every
now and then of the brazen headland that
looked down on us through the snowy
sky. At lest the floe taillight up against
the roam, the looser fragments that hung
around it began to separate, end we were
able by our oars a n d boat honks . to force
our battered little flotilla clear of them.—
To Our joyful auprise, we soon found tior 7
selves in a strech of the land water wide
enough to give us rowing room. and with
assured promise of land close ahead:
"As we neared it, we saw the - ohne
fOrbiilden wall of heft ice In at Sutherland
and fidkluyt. We pulled along its mar
gin, seeking in vain ettlier an opening or
access, or a nook of shelter. The gale
ruse and the ice began to drive again ; but
there' was nothing le be done but get at
grapnel out to the belt and hold on for
the rising tide. The flope stove her bot
tom, and lost part ill her. weatherboarding,
and the boats were badly chafed. It was
an awful storm ; and it was not without
constant 'exertion that we kept 'afloat,
bailing 'out' the scud' that broke'over us,
and •varding off the tee with boat hooks.
"At 3 : o'clotk the tide was Wilt enough
for us to' scale•the ice eliff. Otte:by one
we, pulled up the boats upon narrow,
