gongs paused to rest a moment, the prayers would
cease, and be resumed when the music struck up.
A. shelf was drawn out before the "Sash," on which
was placed for his specie/ use, roast beef, pork,
ducks, fowls, eggs, lobsters, &e. &c. The royal
god dines ale Astor, and is by no means satisfied
with plebian fare. Having eaten a sufficient quan
tity, he graciously permits Ilia worshipyers to par
'Enke of the remainder.
If the god leaves any. of the food, the natives
regard it as indication that their sins are all for
given. The result, probably, is generally very sat
isfactory in regard to the forgiving disposition of
"Josh." and so less gratifying to the palates of his
worshippers. • The exercises were continued till
about sunrise. A pail containing a large piece of
pork, Toddened by a peculiar procees of cooking
with Josh powder, is suspended from the boom—

tors: It is with extreme regret and mortification,
that I have seen circulating in the papers, the—arti
de alluded to in your last, in which a paragraph
published in the New Haven Journal with the sig
nsture of "O," is ascribed to me. The idea that
we shall have no heavy thunder showers, or light
ning striking, as long as we have telegraph wires
spread over the earth, could not, I should suppose,
be entertained by any one, who reflects how small a
proportion such structures of art bear, in extent, to
the grand operations of nature. Although a line
of telegraph wires sometimes undoubtedly facili
tates the passage of electricity from the clouds to
the earth (not by attracting the fluid, but by di
minishing the resistance always experienced by
electricity in passing through the air,) yet nothing
appears to me rn.,re improbable, than that structures
so limited in extent as these are, and always must
be, compared with dimensions of the whole atmos
phere, *Amid, to any great degree, prevent tho ac
cumulation of electricity in thunder storms. One
opinion, however, which I publicly expressed
through the medium of this paper, a year or two
since, may be worth repeating, namely, that on ac
count of the tendency of a thunder cloud, which
approaches near to a line of wires, to discharge its
electricity through that channel, care ought to be
taken, when the poles give warning of the approach
of a thunder cloud to some part of the line, to
complete the conducting communeation with the I
earth, and thns to prevent the charge from explod
ing through the person of the operator. Without
this precaution, I have for some time believed, that
the consequences would sooner or later be fatahis
A RACE WITH AN lairirsx.—On Saturday last a
small party, on their return from a pie nic excur
sion to the Indian village, happened to meet, about
a mile this side the council house, the "last," Indi
an, John Stesprock—(he who came near winning
the great ten mile race at Hoboken.) As some of
the party were on their first visit to an Indian
settlement and were desirous of seeing an Indian
foot-race, John was bantered for a run, and, by the
way of inducement was told that if he would reach
the council house (distant one mile and a trifle
over) before we could drive there with our two
horse team and wagon, containing four persons, he
should have a small purse which was made up on
the spot. John in a guttural " neliwy" consented,
and divesting himself of boots and hat, and tying
a handkerchief tightly around his wa.istan,d another
around his head, was ready for a start. At the
word "go!" and with a crack of the whip, away
we went—team and Indian—the latter "loping'.

oN the 4th of August, in the year 1843, a
singular scene occurred in the Royal Sci
entific Institute of France. The aged, white
headed President, his head bare, his arm out
stretched, his face radiant with smiles, (for
science was triumphant,) and his voice with
gratulatory tone, delivered the following re
port :
" We are astounded at this singular prepa
ration. Where indeed will science stop!—
Here we have a preparation made in the form
of a beautiful piece of soap, which we know
by actual practice. to cure every cutaneous
eruption, every disfigurement of and even dis
colored skin ! Where will its magic and sin
gular power cease? The Negro, the Creole,
the Yellow Race of the East, and the Red Man
of the Far West, are alike under the influence
of its extraordinary powers of clearing yellow
or discolored skin, and making it white and
beautiful and of changing the color of dark, or
black, or brown skin." (Here several persons
were brought forward by the President, who
had used it, in proor of his assertion.)
There are probably few persons of intelli
gence, who, after reading the above, will doubt
the qualities of
Jones' Italian Chemical Soap
in curing Pimples, Blotches, Salt Rheum,
Scurvy, Erysipelas, Sore Heads, Old Sores,
Beard and Barber's itch, Chapped and Tender
Flesh. Freckles, Tan, Sunburn and changing
