GENEROUS ACT.—The '..llethodiit:: are erectin: a
new meeting house in Allegheny city. and CHNRLES
MIMI", Esq., has generously contributed six thou
wilfrardollars, out of his own private purse, towards its
- DAM No. I.—We understand that a vigorous effort
is to be made to repair the damage sustained by Dam
No.l, and that in a substantial manner.
laP'We saw a crowd is Smithfield street yester
day witnessing some operation that was performed
with a hogshead full of water. The crowd was too
dense to admit of a close approach fo the object of
their cariosity, but NW: wereafterwards informed it was
aneahibition of a saw mill on a small scale, the per
of which"astonished every beholder." The
person who exhibited it said machines of the kind were
in extensive use in Greene county. If this will answer
the purpose, any man who can buy a hogshead may
hereafter have a saw mill. We have no doubt but
some of those who saw it yesterday will try the expo-
• ar Dealers in Dry Goods would do well to examine
the exunisive stock of Messrs. E. A. Brown & Brother.
We havo seen additional evidence of the fact we stated
yesterday, that many descriptions of domestic goods
can be obtained cheaper in this city than in the Eastern
Markets. Why should our Western merchants, thee,
spend their time and money in making journeys to the
East, when they can Betas good, if not better bargains
in r , ,v, y thing they want, to buy much nearer home!
THE AQ.VEDUCT. -...- WC are informed that the repairs
that have been made to the Aqueduct will, beyond all
doubt, render it permanent for the balance of the sea
son. The business doing on the canal at present is ve
ry large, and the hPaviest laden boats cross without the
least hesitation. The contractors deserve much credit
for the successful manner in which they have accom
plished their undertaking.
Wyman, the Ventriloquist, is witonisbing the people
of Pittsburgh, Pa.—N. Y. Chronicle.
W'He did "astonish" some of them--ourselves
among the number. Wyman is a magician of no ordi
nary ohmmeter. One of his "sleight of hand" tricks
we will long remember, as it is very closely allied with
an unpaid bill for advertising.

and has been a common topic of conversation, cane
Of on Saturday afternoon, in the Delaware, between
Camden and Smith's Island. A large number of per
sons were on the wharves in Camden and upon .the
tops of the buildings which commanded a clew of the
'scene uf the contest, whileon the river a crowd of boats
of all kinds, from the steamboat New Philadelphia to
the little John Smith. and the light and rapid boats of
the numerous clubs to the old mud stow, cv •re floating
near the place assigned for the regatta, and all ware
tilled with persons anxiotts to witneis such a novel ex
hibition; and among them a large number of ladies,
whose bright eyes gave additional attraction to the ex
hibition. The canoe was painted red. and was mann
,o:td by four fine looking Indians and a squaw. to whom
the post of coxswain was assigned, arid whose dexterity
in Fuddling was almostuniver , ally admired. The oth
er craft was an ordinary four oared bargz-, twenty-two
feet long, manned by white oarsmen. A bout, moored
is the river near Cake's ferry, Camden, had been made
the starting point, and the crafts were to rare a mile
Own the Delaware, to a flag boat anchored at that dis
tance, and then to turn and pull to the starting point.
The Ellat signal gtm was tired at a quarter befo r e five
o'clock, and shortly afterwards the crafts took their
stations. At 5 o'clock the gun was again fired, and
they set off in fine style, the Indians Liking the lealmad
both crews plying their paddles and oars with gnat skill
and rapidity. Toe b irge g tined upon the canoe
dually, and whew at the flag boat the crafts wore nearly
abreast. In rounding dint pnint, the Indians shot ahead
cansiderable, when t to bargemen appeared to make ev
ery exertion to "make up for lee-way," and were gra
dually coming rip, when the Indians arpeured to be
reinvigorated by the fact, anti sprung to it with their
paddles with such effect that, on reaching the starting
point, the can .)e was about two lengths ahead. They
ran to the flag-boat, against the tide, in 10 minutes 1
second, and back to the starting point in 9 minutes 59
sec., thus doing the distanee (two miles) in twenty min
utes. N. Y. Paper.

Excepting a few libel suits against the editors of
the Journal of Commerce, and a few cross shots at the
Express, the Rondout yellow fever has ceased to attract
any interest; and we prosume, when frost makes its
appearance, and the subject can be coolly discussed,
the war among the doctors will be fierce and irreconci
lable. We ought to to hear in mind always, in mitt
dun to this formidable disease, that public safety is
the highest and most important of all considerations.
Sans popit/i, as Dr. Horne used to quote it, is the
first of all our cares and cautions, and when any dis
ease of a peculiar character makes its appearance, no
considerations of interest, no apprehension of injury
to business, should prevent sounding the alarm. Hu
men life is more precious than gold. It is not extra
ordinary that difference of opinion should prevail
among - medical men as to the type of that fever.—N.
