At the late meeting of the New York historical

written by George Washington to a gentleman in
New York of which the following is a copy:—
NI:WM:MI, 51.11 Nov. 198.2.
neon By Dr. Gregg I send you four jots
.£6. 9. 3. which appears to be the balance due you
for your lands.
I pray you to get me made by the measure en. I
closed a pair of the nicest and best leather breeches.
I know not at this time, who is estimated the amt '
celebrated maker, or I w ould not trouble you with
so small a matter. Formerly there was a person
called, I think, the Carabous, by whom very neat
breeches were made. Whether they are yet to be
had, I know not, neither do I know the price of the
leather breeches at this day, but if the money sent
is not sufficient, the defimenc; shall be paid on de.
mand. I would beg to have them sent to me as soon
as possible. I shall thank you for reiterating my
request that they may be made roomy in the seat.
They generally make them so tight in the thigh
that it is with difficulty they can be drawn on.—
The measure enclosed is the size I would have, not
what they could be brought to by Matching.
Yours, &.c. G. Wssiincaoic.

SCI NCE tin Ressin.—An uncommon efihrt is now
making in Russia, to promote a knowledge of the
natural sciences. This is the more extraordinary,
when it is recollected that the imperial government
has exereisesd an unparalleled hostility towards the
only two universities of distinction in poor, degrad
ed, miserable Poland, the victim of the most dis
graceful bar [rarities that were ever practised in a
civilized age. Two professors of geology, whose
high attainments would confer honor on any coun
try, have been dismissed, and the cabinet of tire
former sold in Russia, in order to prevent the pos.

Cancrin, a philosopher as well as minister of State,
was a principal mover in the laudable efforts to en
lighten his rough countrymen in the beautiful and
sublime science of nature. Even Nicholas, 'latent
as be seems to be in fettering the minds, limbs, and
property of his millions of subjects, has sanctioned,
since IS:13, eight expeditions, of moment to the
learned in all countries. Four of them were ex
plorations of the Ural mountains, for the express
purpose of obtaining a complete geological map of
that singular and truly terrific region. North of
these mountains, in the Trans-Caucassian district,
where the auriferous sand, Clinker's salts, and vol.
canic soils, are predominant, tom Russians have
made themselves familiar with all the products
which arc regarded as important by chemists or
geolonists. The Emperor no doubt feels that want
of elevation in all that relates to the appurtenances

COMICAL ArFmn.—As the American schooner
Rialto lay at anchor near Portßuyan on the Cana
dian shore, she was boarded by a custom-house offi
cer and seven deputies, armed to the teeth. He
bound the only man on deck, and then called up
the Captain and crew, and informed them that he
had seized the vessel in the name of the Queen for
a violation of the revenue law, the Captain having
premitted two persons with guns to land upon the
Canada side without reporting the fact to the Cus
tom-House at Port Royan. On being assured that
the men went on shore a gunning, the officer would
not admit the excuse, but ordered the vessel into
harbor as the property of the Queen. This roused
the Yankee captain's dander, and ho immediately
slipped cable and steered for Buffalo, the officers
and their arms to the contrary, notwithstanding--
A heavy gale of wind sprang up, and the Custom
House officers, fearful that the vessel would not
weather the storm, and expecting every moment to
go to the bottom, worked as men never before
worked. They were permitted to go on shore at
Buffido, and having but ten cents among thorn, they
were compelled to go an foot to Black Ruck, whence
they crossed to Canada.

CIARICAL LI BEl.—Rev. Mr. Campbell of the
United States, and Rev. Mr. Robertson of Edinburg,
have recently been attempting to settle a dispute,
which arose from some libellous remarks made by
the former. Mr. Robertson brought an action against
Mr. Campbell for a defamation of character, plac
ing his damage at £5.000. As it was supposed
that Mr. Campbell was about to leave the country
for the United States, a warrant for his commit
ment was obtained and he was taken off and lodg
ed in Glasgow jail. The case came on before
Lord Murry, and that magistrate decided that the
warrant was not of a sufficiently definite character
to justify Mr. Campbell's imprisonment, and he es.
pressed strong doubts whether the case warranted
the incarceration of a foreigner meditating flight.
Mr. Campbell was liberated, and the libel case will
come on shortly. This quarrel between these Cler.

without touching hint. His escape is looked upon
as miraculous, the contents of the shell having
been scattered around for a hundred yards. No
cause is assigned for this attempt upon the life of
Capt. Bragg, except that some of his men thinks
he is too severe in his discipline. This is the

IL Rolfe, of Sandwich, assisted by Mr. T. Wright

success the researches commenced last year among
the early Anglo-Saxon graves then discovered on
Osengaldown in the isle of Thanet. During one
week, there were eight graves opened, which fur_
nicheda number of curious articles of arms and
personal ornaments. In one grave were discovered
a male skeleton, with the skeletons of his wile, and
apparently his daughter, evidently all three interred
at the same time, and in a position which evinces
the affectionate feelings of our early foiefathers.
They lay arm in arm, and the faces of the man
and his wife were separated only by the warrior's
spear. Another grave contained also skeletons of
a male and female, the forehead of the former rest

lady was found a magnificent brooch of siver-gilt
set with garnets.
