Singular Anecdote of n. Thrush.
An English writer in the London Dispatch re
lates the following anecdote concerning the in
telligence of a thrush :
There is more intellect in birds than people
suppose. An instance of this occurred the oth
er day, at a slate quarry belonging to a friend,
from whom I have the narrative. A thrush,
not aware of the expansive properties of gun
powder, thought proper to build her nest on a
ridge of the quarry in the very centre of which
they were constantly blasting the rock. At
Cist, she was very much discontented by the
fm-rraents flying in all directions, but still she
would not quit her chosen locality. She soon
observed that a bell rang whenever a train was
about to be fired, and that, at the notice, the
workmen retired to safe positions. In a few
days, when she heard the bell, she quitted her
exposed situation, and flew down to where the
workmen sheltered themselves, dropping close
to their feet, where she would remain until the
explosion had taken place, and then return to
her nest. The workmen observed this, narra
ted it to their employers, and it was also told to
visitors who came to view the quarry. The vis
itors naturally expressed a wish, to witness so
curious a specimen of intellect, but, as they
could not always be ready to blast when visitors
came, the bell was rung instead, and for a few
times answered the same purpose. The thrush
flew down close to where they stood, but she
perceived that 6he was trifled with, and it inter
fered with her process of incubation ; the conse
quence was, that afterward, when the bell wo'd
ring, she would peep over the ledge to ascertain
if the workmen did retreat, and if they did not,
she would remain where she was, probably eay
tog to herself, No, no, gentlemen ; I'm not to
be roused off my eggs merely for your amuse
ment.' . - - .

I'lease excuse the absence of my child yesterday
Please allow him to leave school to-day I
Such interferences are the perpetual annoy
ance of all whose misfortune it is to be afflicted
with the care of a school. But the annoyance
of the instructor, the interruption of the 'order
of recitations, the inevitable injury done to the
class and to the whole school by the frequent
absence of one and another, in unsettling the
miuds of al serious as they are, are of minor
importance compared with injury which you in
flict on your child by each indulgence.
Why was he absent yesterday from school ?
A cousin had come on a visit, perhaps, or some
member of the family wa3 going on a journey ;
some changes were being made in the family, in
which he persuaded his parents that his services
would be very important ; or he was sent on an
errand after breakfast, which, by a little activi
ty, he might have accomplished in time for
school, but by being studiously dilatory, and ti
ming well every delay, he managed to return too
late for school, he was seized with a violent re
pugnance to going in late. His class would have
finished their recitation before he could have
joined them, and altogether ho gained his point,
and staid away from school. To-day he i3 un
prepared not knowing what the lesson is, it ne
ver having occurred to him at home that it would
immediately succeed the lesson of yesterday,
aud he has taken good care mot to inform him
self since returning to school. Such capital he
makes out a trifle by which to stave off the les
sons of two days. The third day he will, of
course, be found quite unprepared in his lesson,
because it depended upn the lesson of yester
day and the day before it was a continuation
of preceding lessons lost, and it is quite unrea
sonable to expect him to be prepared on it.
Thus he adroitly escaped from study for three
days by your careless indulgence.
To-day, again, he goes to school very quietly,
but with a distinct understanding between Lim
and his mother, that to-morrow he is to be need
ed at home. Whatever lessons he should pre
pare for the recitation of to-morrow are care
fully neglected on the foreseen fact that he is
not to be present when they arc recited.
The loss of time and interruption of your
son's studies are but a single moiety of the mis
chief resulting from his frequent absences.
While he has, by his tactics, managed to elude
recitations and gain time to himself, he lias not
been idle in school. It is not in the nature of
such a child to be idle ; but he has been busily
occupied in manocuvreing with the commander-in-chief,
and adroitly waging a guerilla with his
seat-mates and companions. This puts him and I
his instructor in a false position, and creates
mutual distrust, as antagonist parties, instead
of the mutual confidence and interest which ought
to subsist between them, as having a common in
terest in the occupations of the school. .
"Why is your child absent to-day ? He Las
had a slight pain by a fall, it may be, or had a
pain, or thought he might Lave, and indulgently
obtained consent to remain at home, as if this
would relieve a pain, heal a bruise, or set a
limb ! And yet it has the influence to do all
this to your child : for though too ill to attend
school, he spends the day in sport or wandering
about from place to place.
Why again the request for him to leave school
before it is dismissed ! A ride or a walk ha
been planned by the mother or some member of
the family, which he is to join, or an early din
ner for the family, and he must leave school to
partake of the pleasure w ith them.
Now what is the ready inference of the child
from all this ? Obviously that the school und
Lis studies are but secondary objects of inter
est, which may be set aside on any trifling oc
casion. Taught to regaid his books as of no
interest or importance, he soon regards them
with disgust, as a continual interference. Such
a course of treatment will defeat the best efforts
of any teacher to give your child a taste fot
study, and effectually prevent all just proficien
cy. This backwardness aud aversion to study
will cause you mortification and grief through
life, and yet the whole course of your training
of him is suited only to bring about this result.
But even this is not the worst result of such
indiscretion. A child soon becomes a great
tactician in practising upon the indulgence of
his parents. The instincts of his nature 6et
him diligently to counteract the discipline of the
school. The problem Lis life is every day to
learn the least possible, and to escape from a
lesson is an achievement attended with the most
undisguised satisfaction ; but it Las been ac
complished by dexterous evasions, by deceptive
arts, exaggerated misrepresentations, chiefly
employed ia special pleading, and artfully prac
tising upon the credulity and indulgence of Lis
parents. You unconsciously smile at the ( dex
terity of the plea, and lend to it an indulgent
ear. You make a false show of resistance, just
sufficient to give Lim a conscious triumph in
carying Lis point, as Le sure, to do in tLe end.
WLatever deficiencies your cLild may be certain
of Lis proficiency in all the lowarts of cunning,
evasion, and deception. You are educating him
to become sly, deceptive, evasive, indolent, self
indulgent, self-willed, averse to all that is good,
and prone to every evil.
THE V. STATES & CHEAT BRITAIN.
A Speck or Trouble Fisheries.
The misunderstanding between the United
Staets and Great Britain in relation to the Fish
eries, will no doubt be speedily, honorably and
amicably adjusted ; but meanwhile, it is quite
probable that many exciting rumors will be put
into circulation. The difficulty is one that has
been gradually coming to a head. The Treaty
of 1818 between Great Britain and the United
States, inhibits the Americans from fishing with
in a maritime league of the coast of Nova Sco
tia. They are excluded also from the Bay cf
Fundy and the Gulf of St. Lawrence. Notwith
standing these stipulations, some of our Eastern
fishermen have for a long while past been in the
habit (permitted by the British Government) of
disregarding the prohibitory clauses of the
Treaty in question ; in some cases not only fish
ing within the "maratinie league," but actually
going on shore, and carrying on a trade with the
inhabitants. TLe nature of some of these in
fractions may be inferred from the following
statement (but ex parte, of course) from the Hal
ifax (N. S.) Sun of the 10th instant :
'The Americans, not satisfied with infringing j
on the provsions of the treaty by casting their I
nets side by side with the British, resident and j
subject, within the limits prescribed, perforce i
of numbers and audacity took possession of the j
fish in the nets of their competitors. The in
dignant residents rallied in strong force, an A
merican vessel and crew were captured in way
of reprisal, and taken into harbor. The Amer
icans, during the night following, gathered in
their strength, and triumphantly 'cut the ves
sel out,' leaving the skipper however, in du
rance, unler 'lock and key.' We are not advi
sed of the number of broken heads and bloody
noses, results of the affray, but it is quite cer
tain that the above were among the incidents of
A strong representation was consequently
made to the Briti.-A Government, and an official
despatch was issued to the following effect, by
the Yice-Admiral commanding on the N. I. and
N. A. Station. It was addressed to the " Lieu
tenant Governor of Newfoundland :
Jcxe 21, 18-32. I beg to acquaint you that I
Lave received an intimation from the Amiralty
that the Janus, steam vessel of 4 guns, and 220
horse power, has been ordered from Gibraltar
to St. John's Newfoundland, for the protection
of the fisheries of the North American provin
ces, and that the Buzzard, steam sloop, 500
horso power, from England, and the Mohawk,
from Lake Ontario, (if not sold) will be placed
under my command during the present summer,
for the same general object.
Her Majesty's Government, as your Excellen
cy will have been doubtless informed, have con
curred with the French Government in estab
lishing a commission to investigate the subject
of the Newfoundland fisheries, and to make such
arrangements as may prevent future disputes
and conflicts between the authorities and the
subjects of the two countries.
The Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs
has also acquainted the admiralty that he is of
opinion it is essential for the due maintenance
of British rights, and also for tLe success of tLe
negotiations about to be re-opened that certain
suggestions made by Sir. A." Terrier, Her Majes
ty's Commissioner, should be adopted, if no val
id objections exits ; and that Le proposes to in
struct the Governor of Newfoundland to render
such assistance as may be necessary to the na
val officer employed ; and Sir A. Fcrrier also
deems it desirable that a commission of the
peace should be conferred on the senior officer.
Her Majesty's Government are so desirous
that ample means should be given to cbeck the
numerous encroachments which have been rep
resented to Lave taken place in tLo last few
years at Belle Isle and the coast' of Labrador,
that I am further authorized to Lire and employ
some small schooners, for which I am to provide
officers and men, for the purpose of carrying
the object of Her Majesty's Government fully
into effect on the coast of Labrador, under the
direction of the captain of the ship or steamer
Sir A. Perrier Las suggested tLat tLese may
be procured at St. JoLn's ; and it is desirable
that I should take immediate measures for their
preparation on the arrival of the officers and
crews, shortly expected. I request your Ex
cellency will acquaint me by the return of the
Cherokee whether two or more suitable schoon
ers, calculated to perform the' inshore duties,
and to carry two officers and about twenty men,
can be readily Lired at Newfoundland, and at
wLatmontLly cLarge, or. wLether your Excel
lency is of 'opinion that it woald be preferable
to Lire tLe number of vessels necessary at Hal
ifax, wbere tLe dockyard and tLe crdinanace
establisLments'may enable any little alterations
they require to be more easy of execution.
In case of the Janus arriving at Newfound
land before another opportunity occurs of giv
ing directions to Ler commander, I transmit by
the present opportunity an order to the latter to
consult your Excellency or the administrator of
tLe government, and to follow your recommen
dations as to tLe part of tLo coast to which Le
; sbaU proceed ; but if no immediate destination
is required, Le is to join the Bermuda, and act
upon the orders already given to Lieut. Jolly,
commander of that schooner.
In order to provide early means of giving ad
ditionil protection to the fisheries, pending the
arrival of those vessels, I propose to despatch
Com. Cochrane, of the Sappho, on the 2Cth inst.
to St fierrcs and Miquelon, and from that vi
cinity io go to St. Johns, and put himself in
communication with your Excellency or the ad
ministrator." In addition, we Lave an official despatcL from
Mr. Webster, in wLich Le says that within a
short tine, an American fishing vessel called the
Coral, "belonging to Machias, in Maine, has been
seized m the Bay of Fundy, near Grand Menan,
by the officer commanding her Majesty's cutter
Netleyj already arrived in that bay, for an in
fraction of the fishing convention, and the fish
ing vessel Las carried to the port of St. John,
N. B., where proceedings Lave been taken in
the A&niralty Court, with a view to her con
demnation and absolute forfeiture. Besides tLe
small naval force to be sent out by the im
perial government, the colonies are bestirring
themselves also for the protection of their fish
eries, j Canada has fitted out an armed vessel,
to be stationed in the Gulf, and this vessel has
proceeded to the fishiDg grounds, Laving on
board uot only a naval commander and crew,
with f ower to seize vessels within limits, but al
so a stipendiary magistrate and civil police, to
make irisoners of all who are found transgres
sing the laws of Canada, in order to their being
committed to jail in that colony for trial.
The eolony of Newfoundland had fitted out an
aimed vessel, for the purpose of resisting the
encrotchments of French fishing vessels on the
coast of Labrador, but, when ready to sail from
her pojt, the Governor of that colony, acting
under imperial instructions, refused to give the
commaidcr of the colonial vessel the necessary
authority for making prize of French vessels
This, says Mr. Webster, "is an extraordinary
circumstance, especially when taken in connec
tion wkh the fact that the like authority to
seize .American fishing vessels under similar cir
cunisUnces, has never been refused to the crui
sers of the North American colonies." The
colony o&Nova Scotia Las now four armed crui
sers, well manned, on its coasts, ready to pounce
upon ny American vessels tLat may accidental
ly or therwise, be found fishing within the lim
its defined by the crown officers of England.
New Brunswick has agreed with Canada and
Nova Scotia to place a cutter in the Bay of Fun
dy, to look after American fishing there and at
Frince Edward Island, and her Majesty's steam
frigate Devastation has been placed under the
instruction of the Governor of that colony."
The vessels of war alluded to above, are ex
pected to be on the coast of British North A
nierici during the present month, July, when
no doubt seizures will begin to be made of A
merican fishing vessels, which, in the autumn,
pursue their business interests on the coast
from which, it is contended, they are excluded
by the convention of 1818.
It would seem that the English Government
has now, and under the present Derby Ministry
consented to give a construction to the Conven
tion cf 1818, for which the British Colonies im
mediately interested in tLe Fisheries, viz : New
Brunswick, Novia Scotia, Canada, Prince Ed
ward's Islands, Cape Breton, Newfoundland, &c.
have contended since 1841 a construction which
if enforced, will Lave tLe effect of destroying
the fall fishing to American fisheries, and to
produce constant collisions of the most uuple
sant character "collisions," in the language of
Mr. Webster, "which may end the in destruction
of human life, and the involvement of the Gov
ernment in a question of a very serious nature,
touching the peace of the two countries." It is
this language, and from so high a source wLicL
imparts to tLis difficulty a somewhat ominous
aspect. TLe American Government does nit
agree with the construction put upon the treaty
by the present British Ministry, and will imme
diately direct its attention to the whole subject.
It should be remembered, that the sudden turn of
the consequences of the recent change in the
British Ministry, a change, by the way, that is
not likely to prove very jiermanent. Under the
treaty of 1818, American fishermen had been
allowed to take fish on the coasts cf BritisL A
merica in any waters three miles from the land.
On the accession of Lord Derby to the post of
rrime Minister, the British cabinet adopted a
a new interpretation of the treaty, by virtue of
which they have resolved to expel the Ameri
cans from all fishing grounds within their large
bays, without any regard to their distance from
the 6hore. The process of seizing American
fisherman on these grounds Las already begun,
and all wLo venture within the waters covered
by the new pretensions of the BritisL cabinet,
will be captured and condemned.
The facts may be summed up in a few words.
Under the old interpretation of the treaty of
1818, American vessels were allowed to fish in
cartain waters. Under tLe new interpretation
by Lord Derby and Lis colleagues, tLey are to
be driven out. Armed cruisers are already on
tLeir way from England and BritisL America, to
seize and capture the alleged trespassers. Col
lisions will be inevitable. TLe American gov
ernment disagrees with the Derby interpreta
tion of the Treaty, and will immediately take
measures to secure the full and effective vindi
cation of American rights. Meanwhile, we re
peat, many exciting rumors will no doubt be cir
culated upon the subject. Phila. Enquirer.
C5yThe London papers received by the last
arrival, are almost wholly occupied with the el

An. Improved Railroad.
Mr. Carpenter, of Rome, N. Y., Las made an
improvement in tLe ordinary iron railroad, cal
culated greatly to diminish the liability, if not
utterly preclude the possibility of a train run
ning off the track, under any circumstances.
The improvement consists of a middle rail of
iron or wood, running the whole length of the
track precisely in its centre, and raised a foot
or so above the side or bearing rails. Friction
rollers ar"e attached to the engine and cars bcr
neath, to play upon the sides of the middle or
guiding rail, whereby tLe motion of eacL car is
steadied, and any tendency to fly the track at
onco arrested. TLis 6eems to us a very good

The Shirt Collar.
The prevailing fashion for high standing shirt
collars, little less stiff than parchment, reminds
us frequently of the queer name the article gees -by
in Germany, and the story of the way in
which the name originated. The Germans, so
we read in a book of good authority, call theo
standing collars, "father murderers!" It ap
peal's that many years ago it was the height of
fashion at one of the German universities for thar-?'
students to wear standing collars as stiff s
boards, as Ligh as nature and the wearer's ear
would allow, and projecting in front of the face
by two inches at least, and with very sharp
points. On the first vacation after thcr Tashion
was introduced, one of the students Lurried
