A "professional" gentleman had telegraphed to

brief season, at the National, and received the an.
swer through the same highway of thought.—
Opening the communication handed him by the
boy, he thought lie spied the game of some wag in
the matter, and he exclaimed," You can't fool me;
this ain't her writing. I've seen it a thousand times,
and this ain't nu more like hers than mine is!"—
And with a quiet wink at his shrewdness, he pro
ceeded to give directions about the stage.
The manager had not probably heard that "the
news is transmitted in a fluid state;" and was as
ignorant of the modus operandi, as a patron of the
telegraph here, who offered a communication com.

SCIENTIFIC EXPEDITITION TO TIIE DEAD SEL-A
party of Naval Officers under the command of

in the United States ship Supply, to the Mediterra

the Dead Sea. One great object of the investiga

shores are of volcanic or non-volcanic origin. The

TIIF: Moos Ssccxes.—French novel writers, even

eccentricity is necessary to secure them attention,
At this moment works arc in course of publication
called "The Club of the Damned," " The Blue
faced Knight," "The Bloody Shoestrings," " My
Father's Shirt," and "The Nose." Modern French
poets, too, have the funniest ideas and expressions
imaginable. Within the last few days I have met
with the following titbits in poems which have the
pretension to be serious:—"A sound as when the
moon sneezes," "It looked like a ray of honey!"
"The agitated steel," for the ringing of a bell;
" Heaven coughed," for it thundered ; "Great man !
though art not a simple ceiling—thou art the sky !"
"heaven—God's blue carpet !" "Those tender
' fowls with heavenly wings—Angels !"

Michael Leonard, a Teamster belonging to the

hung yesterday morning in the Main Plaza, in
pursuance of his sentence, for the murder of an
other Teamster, named William Hampton. The
murder occurred on the road the day after the bat
tle of Huamantla. Leonard bad previously quer
relcd with a wagon-master named Boulct, and in
tended to kill him alone. Roulet, however, escaped
with the loss of an arm, while the same shot. killed
Hampton. An immense crowd assembled to wit
ness the execution. Leonard expressed no regret
at dying, and said that his sentence was a just
one, but that if he had the thing to do over again,
he would avenge himself on Boulct.
ANoTurrt. Mt:Rom—Juan Mose, one of the most

REMINISCEi4CES or INDIA.—On the first establish,
ment of a judicial department in a colony that has
been accustomed summarily to regulate its own
disputes, the colonists themselves arc generally
averse to the introduction of laws curtailing their
natural liberty. The island of Pule Penang in the
Straits:of Malacca, had, for a considerable time
after its establishment, been governed by a species
of lynch law, administered, as it was termed, by a
Penang lawyer, alias, a thick bamboo cane, which
grows in that island; and so many knock-me
down arguments had occurred, that it was neces
sary for the preservation of the brains of those re.
sidents who had any, to institute a secure, perfect,
and justifiable mode of settling disputes. A regn.
lar judicial court, with a recorder as judge, accord
ingly superseded the authority of the Penang law
yer; but from the conflicting elements of which it
was composed, many ludicrous scenes occurred, of
which the following is a specimen.

NATUR tr. lLe roil Y.—A paper was lately read
before the British Association of Geologists by E.
Vevian, which gave an account of sonic recent re.
searches on Kent's Cavern by the Torquay Nat.
oral History Society in which it would appear that
our forefathers were at one period unacquainted
o ith the use of iron.
In one place was found a layer ofdark mould, con .
taining burnt wood or charcoal, with recent shells
and bones, resting on the floor of staglamite, and
below this, a solid bed of red marl, full of broken
bones, and teeth of extinct animals. In another
place, below a floor of staglamite, which was care
fully swept and seemed never to have been disturb.
cd, they found the same red loam, with many
bones much decayed, and a flint knife. In another
place where the staglamitc was about one foot
thick, the same loam contained a bed of Ihssil teeth,
principally of hyena, many fossil bodies, and
among them another perfect flint knife. The
author thought the cave was first inhabited by bears,
hyenas, and other carnivorous animals, by whom
many of the bones were carried into the cave; that
those, by means of a flood, were mixed with the
red loam, and that men sub,ermently inhabited the
cave, leaving the flint knives now found. Then
came a third period in which the staglamite was
deposited; and last of all, that period in which the
British contains found above the staglamite were
deposited in the cave.
Tut: PATH lOT'S Don Ix Bairns.—A letter from
Capt. Merrill, of the army in Mexico, gives the fol
lowing witching incidents :

Ile fell early in the action front a wound ir; the leg.
On the slight repuloc of our troops be was it,hu
manly murdered by the enemy's lancers- His
faithful dog—a beautiful pointer, had accompanied
him there; he was also wounded. During the ac
tion he became separated from his master. After it
had sub4ded, the noble form of Burwell, manly as
in life, was discovered, and beside him, and licking
his face and wounds was his poor dog, who regard
less of his own pain, had sought his generous mas
ter in the hour of danger, there, upon the same
field, to die. This affectionate scene touched the
hearts of many.
Again, after the fury of the battle was over, I
saw a camp-woman, of the infantry, who came
upon the field to look for her husband. Almost
frantic with despair she ran from one to another to
enquire after him, but getting no information she
immediately went to search for him among the
slain. Passing from body to body, she at length
found Trim—dead. Kneeling over his corpse she
endeavored to raise it, but finding life extinct, slie
gave utterance to shrieks and lamentations, truly
touching to hear. ller all had fallen. She con.
tinned to remain on the field, (under fire of the
enemy) until his lifeless body was carried off, which
she followed in the deepest grief. Such is affec

LABOITISG CLASSES OF ENGLAND AND TRELINEL-1t
must he a sad picture to look upon the laboring
classes of England and Ireland—that empire of
aplen dor and wretchedness. The recent arrivals,
repeat in doleful and afflicting acecnts,the accounts
of their increasing want and woe and misery, and
as the winter advances, their condition must ine
vitably grow worse. There seems no relief for the
destitute—no hope but death for the suffering.
A late number of the Westminster Review has
a long article that speaks in tones that should, and
must eventually, be listened to. The upper, and
even the middling classes, says the writer, have
been so long habituated to a knowledge of the ex
istence of misery and want and privation, that
they ask with indolent or vapid indifference,
when pressed upon to consider the whole question,
"what is there new that we have not heard of?
Is there anything pea ticular to which you refer."
Tell them that an agricultural laborer, who toils
twelve and often fourteen hours per day, in cold,
rain, frost, sun, fog—alternately frozen, blanched
and drenched, earns for the week's labor, for the
support of himself, his wife and four or five chil
dren, none of them able to leave the hut in which
they reside, without the mother accompanying them,
the wretched pittance of twelve shillings—and
they will answer. 0, that has been the price for
e long filar." The writer replies :
No it is not all, for these men shall hear how
these twelve shillings are expended; and when
they look on their tables, groaning with luxuries,
land FCC their own eyes stand out with Carless, let
the bill of fare of the insufficiently paid laborer,
stare them it. 1 1 :.?. face:

And this in the palmy days of what England
calls plenty. No butter—no milk—no meat— no
red herring—no clothing—no medicine—no shoes
or boots—no provision put by for the times when
the husband is unable to work, from sickness or
accident; and yet the twelve shillings are gone:

Mrs. 11. Z. a very respectable lady of the city of
Albany, mother of several small children, of tall
stature and spare habil, Lind been under treatment
for an obstinate uterine disease, attended with :Jr , 3-
lapses uteri, severe pain in the side, weakness of
the back, general muscular debility, lassitude,
languor, acidity of stomach, much indigestion and
costiveness. As medicine seemed to have but slight
effect in affording relief, arising in part, from her
situx.ion as a mother in the daily discharge of
domestic ditties, I recommended a trial of De.
Crain's Spino•Abdomin4l Supporter. In April,
1816 she commenced the use of one, and has con
tinued to wear it up to this date, with very great
relief to all her unpleasant symptoms, and with the
most flattering promise of receiving perinanera
benefit. From the result of this case, as well as
front the excellent mechanical construction and
adaptation of Dr. Crain's instrument, I take pleasure.
in recommending it to the attention of medical
