Whenever they show, their unworthineae and

experienced, intelligent, firm and patriotic Pe

Almonte of the mild and virtuous Herrera

voa! The first three have taken no part in the
present dfliculties because their places were
supplied by the corrupt satellites of Paredesand
Santa Anna ; the last two have been pressed
into service in the !aat extremity of the nation.
Ilrrrera was selected by Santa Anna as one of
the Commissioners to conclude and determine
upon the proposal of Mr. Trist, with a view,
no doubt, nf ahnlTl'eg npon Herrera' shoulders

concluded. Bravo was a anointed in defend the
last fortification which remained in the barn's nf
the Mexicans before their capital waa entered
by our troops ; and worthily did he sustain at
Chapultepee the high name and reputation a-
chieved by himself and his two gallant brother
in the Mex'can war of Independence. ' There

vile charactera in the country. , Sut-h men as
Valencia, Ampudia, Tornel, Gurrztix,, Salsa,
Gary, Alvarrg and others men, tool and de
pendent of Santa Anna, are the ruling spirits
of Mexico. These are the men who have kept
live the spirit of Revolution and insubordina
tion in the country. They have brought Mexi
co to her present condition, nd if they are per
mitted to continue in power they will reduce
her still lower. The first to involve their conn
try le wr, they are always the foremost to fly
from the peril they have provoked. Always
opposed to peace, and loud toned advocates of
war, they can never be brought to manifest their
principles and feelings by acts rather than
We were led into these reflections by reading
of the etupendou efforts of Gen. Perdtgon Ga

operate againat our army. We could scarcely
believe it possible that so arrant a coward aa

suggestion was adopted by Gen. Srott, and Ga

One waa the head of a lady, with her hair part

and colors,' although the surface from which it
grew resembled stone somewhat like a wex
model also a child's head, plump and aa in
life, and a tongue petrified aa if it never uttered
a aonnd. . The petrifying process is said to be
simple snd cheap. A boqnet of choice flower
the juices first extracted by a pneumatic pro-
cePs preserved their natural colors, but were
as hard snd rigid if some cunning workmen
had carved them from Persian marble for nut
only the Icavea and petala were rendered atone-
like, but the minute hair-formed stems were
rendered eoraline. ITjreAenge.
Thia discovery was made several yeara ago
in Italy by a physician named Sepatn, He in
vented a method by which he could convert the
entire body into stone in the space of about two
weeks. The material was susceptible of a very
high polish, and many article nf stone furni
ture, such as centre-tables, &.C., were made from
varinua parte of the body put together in the
form of mosaic work. A it ha been the case
with many other pioneers of acience, o it was

to amend it by making a verbal disclosure of hia
process. But it was too late. The feeblenes
of approaching dissolution prevented him, and
he died in the effort to reveal his secret, another

went. .:: i i t t i ' ?
He waa hardly cold in hia coffin before tbreo
different propositions for purchaaing the secret
were received, uither one of which, would have
made him independent of all the contingencies
of life. The re-discovery of thi process wo
frequently attempted, and it via elated in on
of the medical journals of the year 1643 that a no.

Alexarderof Wiriemberp, who afterwards mar
